javafx application launching

You want to add the ability to launch javafx applications directly by 
the launcher, instead of bundling a main class that could change.
Could you tell me where is the problem with, for example, having your 
own main method and calling launch?
It may sometimes give more flexibility, although it's possible to 
overcome that.
Why the javafx launcher is needed at all?
I think the bundled thing checks for the existence of javafx in the 
system and notifies he user.
But in the case of jdk8, javafx will be integrated, so why would you 
want to bypass the current way of just launching a main class if you can 
still run the launch method?
