JavaFX 2.0 controls are open-sourced, and the rest of JavaFX is coming, 
so didn't you think about contributing your work to OpenJFX? Or even 
starting a new OpenJDK project to implement native look for JavaFX 
controls? Note that such project is not Aqua (Mac OS X) specific: on 
Windows, there is also a way to render platform widgets to offscreen, we 
use this approach in Windows L&F in Swing.
