Oracle has very very VERY strict rules for its employee on releasing information. It is considered a capital sin to release any info before it is officially sanctioned by the organization. I figure the JFX team don't want to lie, hence you (we) probably simply are not going to get a response to this important question.
But there have been minor slips about that there is work going on with regards to touch controlling of JavaFX (I hope they will do a better job in intermixing mouse and touch control than W8 is currently doing), and we have all seen the iOS demo's. So chances are high that there are talking going on. But until it is official, you won't hear anything.
