Is Oracle going to make Java Web Start open source?

Since Oracle has dropped the deployment technologies like Java Web Start from their Java 11 SE and follow-on releases, will they now make this available as open source?

There is the IcedTea-Web project under OpenJDK but I don't think this is the same as the source being used for the Oracle Java Web Start implementation. The IcedTea-Web project only mentions that this was based on the NetX project, which has not had any activity for years..

How do we request that they consider this?
