I've asked this approximate question here a few times, with no
official response. The reason I ask is that in addition to Java 7 not
being recommended, in Java 7 OpenJDK becomes the "reference" JVM, and
OpenJDK is also not recommended.

Java 7 is "it 'works' but is not as extensively tested (and definitely
not as commonly deployed) as Java 6".
