I know! And that's one problem. Unfortunately it's really hard to
package OpenJFX for Linux (which is actually still the main consumer
of OpenJDK and OpenJFX), this would be mitigated (as well as speed up
adoption) if OpenJFX was formally part of OpenJDK.

I think original plans were for JDK8, then JDK9, but apparently this
will be moved again.

Anyway, this is (partially) off topic for this list, it should
probably be discussed with the OpenJFX people first.
