To me this is the most important disadvantage. For enterprises it is
very important to have control over versions, autoupdate is ususally the
first thing that gets disabled.

My opinion is that JavaFX should not be bundled with the JRE and/or
installed system wide, but should be the developers responsibility to
bundle with the application, together with any other libraries.

Best regards, Roman
