No, because it requires marking the matching files first, but if
there's a way to do that, I could (manually) chain the two

Alternatively, is there a way that I could query-replace-regexp
on a grep-mode buffer, instead of a dired buffer? I'd be happy if
I could

M-x grep-find RET

find . -type f -print0 -name '*.java'| xargs -0 -e grep -n -e 
'GenericAction' | grep -v 'EGLGenericAction' | grep -v 
'GenericActionModel' | grep -v 'GenericActionCodeGenContrib' RET


GenericAction RET

ActionClass RET
