icedtea-web installed and enabled by default in Fedora 19

I noticed that icedtea-web (the Java browser plugin implementation for 
OpenJDK) is installed and enabled by default (as part of the "GNOME 
Desktop" set).  This is a bit surprising, considering that the rest of 
the world tries to move away from Java browser plugin technology (and 
even browser plugin technology in general).

We cannot really remove installed packages after the release, so I'm 
wondering if we still can fix this prior to release.
