The problem is absolutely real, but the best solution is to fix Java 7 as fast as possible so it is a viable solution by the time 10.9 comes out.
Let's hope it is achievable.
Whining to Apple to support something they already deprecated and Oracle already considers "end-of-life", is far less likely to yield results IMO.

If I take the question from a different point of view:
Is the currently running Java 7 so buggy / with so many security flaws ?
(of course, if it is so bad, why people are using it ?)
The specific issue of the OP, AFAIU, are Mac OS X specific bugs with JDK 7. This means that other people are happy, and of course you don't necessarily do things that have to do with those bugs. For instance, NetBeans and IDEA seem to work with no visible issue on Mac OS X. But if you have an application which is impacted, and you solve the problem by staying with JDK 6, you are legitimately worried. This means that JDK 7 can be usable for most people, but the problem is real.
