And after a quick Google search it sounds like RO doesn't strip dissolved gases (O2, CO2) so that might be the one major difference between RO and distilled finished product

However, I would think that stirring the water/must (like during punch down) would reoxygenate it.
Distilled water exposed to air will re-oxygenate itself over time. Can't say how long it will take though. My guess would be a couple of days. The process of pouring, stirring and so forth in making wine, will accelerate the transfer of oxygen into the water. FWIW, I use RO water from Walmart filled in 1 gallon jugs. :) I do use distilled water to rinse my pH meter though.
