In the latter case one could specifically narrow access without impacting common browsers. Or am I totally thinking in the wrong direction here?

Everybody is allergic to java except for java programmers. Java is used by so many things - you can’t work around it - There might come a time (like with flash) that it is in fact obsolete, but that will take a long time. Java is heavily used in webapps and GUIs that use HTTPS. We’ll need to find a solution.
