PeopleSoft and Fusion are/will be two completely different products with different technologies.
(so any eventual 'upgrade' from PeopleSoft to Fusion will be more of a reimplementation and redevelopment of all customisations).

Fusion Applications will really use Oracle Fusion Middleware as a genuine application server. PeopleSoft uses Tuxedo in its own proprietory application server, and Oracle have stated that they have no plans to change this. Weblogic, Websphere, and Fusion Middleware can all be used as servlet containers for the PeopleSoft Java servlet, and you will still need Tuxedo.

I cannot see any merit in using Fusion Middleware as a PeopleSoft servlet container.
Although I can see risk - the risk of encountering something that doesn't work the same on Fusion Middleware as on WebLogic.
