Can't speak for Rich, but I have been thinking of something along the lines of #2. I can imagine a system where FXML is generated from database tables (or other structured data repository) for example. Another possible scenario is a form authoring tool (for example, for internal corporate apps). The forms would be stored on the server and loaded dynamically by the client. The logic for the forms would be implemented in script code rather than a compiled controller so it could be updated easily, like HTML.
