This is probably the best choice so far. A few ideas:

1) Instead or r1, use ${PR}, so that updates to this ebuild don't make
    a mess.

2) Perhaps even explain the situation to the user: If they download the
    file, name it ${SRC_URI} and still see md5sum failures, it will mean
    that they have stumbled across a different revision. This should
    be reported, or they should try another -rX of the jdk docs.

    Hurrah for inane release policies.
