I do not have experience with this specific Oracle version, but past experiences with non-Apple maintained versions were not that great, due to many small details, that finally ruined the general good experience provided by OS X.

If OS X Mavericks comes with 1.7 preinstalled, ok, otherwise perhaps we could wait a bit...

Mavericks still downloads Java 6 by default. The latest I've read about Apple's Java plans was that they were not going to provide their own Java 7 and they would contribute to the OpenJDK project. So I don't think we'll ever see an "Apple-maintained" major version again.
