How many Fedora users will use OOo vs. how many will use Java
development tools?  The main use most users have for Java is applets,
and Fedora doesn't have anything for applets yet (you still have to use
Sun's JRE which can't be included in Fedora).

I think you are overestimating the importance of Java to the average
