Would it be better to start placing it at the European colo now? 
Eventually the goal is that this application would be 'run' by many 
people, but since the web start version would only be updated on a dot 
release, or critical fix, for the most part it would result in 4 HTTP 
hits to the web server, all returning 304 Not Modified, unless a new 
user starts using it, and then Web start would download the .jnlp file 
and associated files, which would total 900kb at the moment.  So yes, a 
reasonable hit to the server might be initially seen, with it tapering off.

There is a possibility of creating a custom jar that contains only the 
files needed by the app, but I am not sure how much that would save, as 
it needs a fair bit from the log4j core jar.
