I wouldn't worry about this;  there's no need to rush an OpenJDK into
kfreebsd for wheezy.  Even if we could, consider that OpenJDK and the
reverse build-deps that will get built, have had almost zero testing on
this arch.

So I'd actually prefer the opposite - do whatever is quickest and
easiest to get the release done.  Then when testing re-opens we know we
can get OpenJDK built, plus lots of new packages that have been waiting
on it.
