Well, comps has this:
<_description>Support for running programs written in the Java
so it looks like it is in by default, on a DVD install at least. For
live images, Desktop and Xfce correctly specify icedtea-web, lxde
specifies the old name java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin (not sure if this would
get ignored, or replaced with icedtea-web via the obsoletes/provides).
KDE doesn't appear to specify either (though Konq does its own thing
with plugins, so maybe it happens some other way).
Seems like this was fixed in comps on April 25, so I think it missed
was fixed in spin-kickstarts for Desktop on April 18:
and for Xfce on April 16:
again, missing Beta. So I'd expect this is probably broken in Beta and
fixed in TC1, as the executive summary...
