I've mentioned this before but if the JFX team were to run their own maven repository (free, easy to setup and can run on Tomcat) then we would have no legal problems here as oracle would still be distributing the jars. A maven repo is really just like a file/FTP server and very similar to your zip files above. 

Details on setting one up is here:

I'd be happy to talk someone through every step involved, I just legally can't do it myself. It has to be running on an oracle server and deployed by oracle staff. There is no risk to oracle here, as I said for all intents and purposes it is just like your zip files.
