I think that is a good idea. The plan of record is to maintain compatibility as much as possible between now and the eventual JSR for including JavaFX into the JRE (assuming the JCP votes it in and all that good stuff). At that point we'd have a break, though we'd attempt to minimize it as much as possible and we'd only remove those things that had been deprecated, so that developers know what is coming.
