JIRA issue: https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-27785
This API change is about adding marginProperty() to Node that would be
then used by layout Panes instead of the current constraints (static
methods getMargin/setMargin). The getMargin/setMargin on these Panes
will just delegate to the property.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to update Region.layoutInArea and
Region.positionInArea methods to use child.getMargin() internally, as
there's an overloaded method (in both cases) that already doesn't have
Margin in it's parameters and uses Insets.EMPTY instead. Changing this
to child.getMargin() might cause backward incompatibility issues.
