I've read the other mails and I see that there are a number of 
discussion points that needs to be resolved before the proposal can move 

On the Profile attribute then the concern is where Main-Class is not 
present, in that case the JAR file isn't technically an executable JAR 
file and so would be considered a library JAR in the current proposal, 
hence different defaults so no fast-fail for FX applications.
