Oracle could still produce a downloadable artifact, since is quite easy, even if the build is not
mavenized (which is good unless you want JavaFX to become a google mirror!!! - no pun intended ;)

In any case, installing one locally is trivial, this is what we do to build ThingsFX:

mvn install:install-file
  -DgroupId=com.oracle.javafx -DartifactId=javafx -Dversion=2.0

This can even go in the build.xml of the binary package so that you don't need to mavenize,
just install the library.

The only gotcha is that the jar file doesn't include the native library, and only doing this fails
to produce a runnable binary, at least on OSX (this can be easily fixed though).
