Javafx embedded in swing multithreaded toolkit issue

I'd like to have the opposite: embed Swing in JavaFX.
I know it is not gonna happen but it seems to be cleaner for a migration
from Swing: wrap the existing Swing app into some (new) FX container
node and then migrate the Swing parts step by step into FX. This would
be a top-down migration instead of the current bottom-up migration which
requires me to replace Swing parts with JFXPanels.
For the record, I have seen a blog about this option, apparently based
on frequently taking screenshots of Swing components and showing those
screenshots in an FX imageview (or something like that). Mouse events
etc are passed through. However, that sounds nightmarish for
performance, compatibility, robustness...
