I would suggest that you should use "openjfx.deploy" and not use "javafx.deploy". We should follow the pattern here of OpenJDK and Java. OpenJDK is the open source project, with its own distinct set of binaries from the commercial Java binaries. Likewise, JavaFX is the product that Oracle produces based on the OpenJFX bits. Even if/when we get to the point where the binaries are exactly the same, I'm sure the distinction will be something Oracle will want to preserve.

But there's no problem producing OpenJFX builds and such.
