Since this is a technical list you won't get any specific legal advice about redistribution here. I would offer an alternative, but I can't right now. Sorry.

Java Web Start will have no overlap and nothing to do whatsoever with the App Store. Your users just need to get the Java 7 runtime for Mac OS X. Mac OS X has a hidden app that is registered as the handler for .jnlp files and will use Java 7 if it's available.
Users will not be able to get the runtime from the Mac OS X app store because the runtime is a component that we want to have full functionality.
