I always thought the JavaFX-Codebase should be able to run with just the
java.base module but I was browsing the codebase a bit and was suprised
(or rather shocked) that even the base-module requires java.desktop.

If I get it correct this because of the java.beans (provided by the
adapters) stuff is found in there. Why hasn't the requires there not
defined as:

requires static java.desktop;
