I wouldn't like to see Java deprecated, just because some people at Apple want to deprecate Java.
GCC is not installed by default, but it is required to use MacPorts.
Since (up to now) Apple indeed removed JDK (as it has already removed GCC)  but let an easy way to re-install JDK, I'd suggest to leave things as is with Java.
