On a slight tangent, how has this security push affected the schedule of
releases OpenJFX?  Can an accurate estimate even be made? (i.e.estimates of
available engineering hours for OpenJFX cannot be reliably be made because
of security work).

IIRC There are still a few more components left to open source before it
can be stood up entirely on it's own inside OpenJDK.  OpenJFX inside
OpenJDK at least provides another distribution alternative besides "wait
for next year."
