I understand that the long term plan with Fedora is to expose all

I wouldn't say that, really. I don't think anyone is going to make a
D-BUS service for exposing Apache configuration, for example. That's
not to say it wouldn't be neat if it just happened, but I think it would
be of less value than some other things we could be spending time on.
Are there any Java bindings
for this yet?
Not yet, no. The Java-GNOME people are working on it though:
Part of the reason I ask is I'm wondering what is (or will be)
correct way to query locally installed RPMs.
I think Robin's correct; your best bet now is just to invoke rpm.
Alternatively there might be Java bindings to the librpm.
