In the release noted for CDH6 beta I've noticed that only Oracle's JDK 8 is listed as supported.
The new Java release cycle and support roadmap from Oracle is a big change from the past:
Are there any plans to support something different from Oracle JVM in CDH6 (eg OpenJDK packaged in RHEL)? I don't know how long this beta will be but releasing a new major version on an eol-JVM is not really promising.

We usually don't communicate product announcements though forum answers, but yes we're actively working on solutions.
Specifically regarding C6.0.0 beta, although it is EOL, JDK 8 is currently the only released LTS version. JDK 9 is already dead, JDK 10 will be in a few months ("Java SE 10 (18.3) will be a short term release and users should transition to the next release when available"). And as you saw in your link, it's possible to get JDK 8 support all the way through 2020 (not that this will be the only option).
Hope this helps,
