I suppose setting the standard here is up to the Fedora governing

today is that there won't be one before F8.

Assuming you can get the encumbrances removed and get a 100% Free software solution soon then including OpenJDK in x86 and x86_64 which covers about 80% of our users[1] while putting in GCJ for PPC in Fedora 8 and continuing to push for a PPC port would be a good approach.
