Allow me to explain the user view point

        "I DONT CARE"


Compatibility works because the components don't plead strict standards
compliance at each other but compensate. So if we are shipping compiz
by default we need to either
        - Fix java (assuming it all ends up free in time)

would be the best solution

        - Ensure the environment fix is set by default

would be easy to do but its somehow a hack.... but we did something similar for flash before until it gots fixed so what...

Didn't seem to be.

again I dunno where you got this do you mean compiz upstream or  in fedora?
I agree that compiz in fedora needs more love but upstream _is_ maintained just look at the commits in the git tree:
