What happened to IcedTea in Hardy?

I installed Hardy about a week ago and installed from Hardy's repos:

icedtea-java7-bin (7~b24-1.5+20080118-1)
icedtea-java7-jre (7~b24-1.5+20080118-1)
icedtea-java7-plugin (7~b24-1.5+20080118-1)

But today I noticed that those packages are "Not Installable" as they
have disappeared from the repos...

Will they come back?
Were they superseded by something else? (openjdk-6-*?)
What is the recommended Java plugin for Mozilla now? (icedtea-gcjwebplugin?)
