I see a lot of work going into this.

In order for this to progress beyond the prototype or concept phase, we will need to have a discussion on the openjfx-dev mailing list in a separate email thread that is not directly tied to the PR -- meaning not a reply to the RFR thread and not a comment in the PR.

@tsayao When you are ready, please send a short email (not a reply to any existing message) to openjfx-dev at openjdk.java.net with the following:

1. A short summary of the proposed enhancement
2. The goals of the proposed enhancement
3. A description of the proposed changes (basically, the bullet items from the description of this PR)
4. A pointer to this PR for reference

I want to focus the openjfx-dev discussion on getting general agreement on the overall approach rather than on the details of the code changes. This is a big change, so getting feedback on the overall goals and approach is important; review comments in the PR aren't the best way to have that discussion.

We aren't following the formal JEP process for JavaFX features, but the JEP template in [JEP 2](https://openjdk.java.net/jeps/2) is a good format to follow for large or high-impact features to make sure that the motivation, goals, and tradeoffs are documented.

Finally, I note that this will eventually need a CSR, but that can be done once there is agreement on the approach, and when this is farther along in the review process.
