Update on the JavaFX 8.0 (formerly 3.0) release in JDK8

Just to make sure I get this right. JavaFX will be on the bootclasspath
for JDK8 but there won't be a JSR, right?

Why do I ask for a JSR? In OSGi we have so called profiles e.g. for
Java6 SE, Java7 SE who hold the packages part of the JDK/JRE but if
there's no JSR one can't rely that a Java-Install which identifies
oneself as Java8 is having and we can't have those in the Java8 SE profile.

We already have ideas how we can solve the none-JSR case but they are
not the ideal solution (the one we need to role in case you put it on
the 7u8/10 bootclasspath).
