I'd quite happily refactor ReadOnlyUnbackedObservableList to extend from 
BaseObservableList, if it reduces the amount of code needing to be 
maintained in ROUOL (whilst retaining the same behavior). I don't think 
I could use BaseObservableList outright, but I'll happily be proven 
wrong (and I'll look into it further when the code arrives in the repo). 
I have no intention of making this class public however - it is an 
implementation detail of the various selection models in JavaFX UI controls.
