Committing (rather than cancelling) cell changes on focus loss

I've been aware for a very long time that many people would love to see
the default behavior for the ListView / TreeView / TableView /
TreeTableView controls change from being 'cancel edit on focus lost' to
'commit edit on focus lost' when users are editing the value of a cell.
I believe the main JBS issue is this one:
I've developed a proposal on how this can be changed without breaking
any APIs. Additionally, the semantics don't change by default - all
current users won't be impacted, only those that opt-in by overriding a
new protected method. I've posted a brief summary of the proposed
changes as a comment in the JBS issue linked above. I am very keen to
hear thoughts in the JBS issue (don't spam the list!), and let's see how
things shape up from this discussion.
