JavaFX Form Validation

Well my fear is that the more functions you push into JavaFX the more
code they have to maintain and the less time they can spend on controls
I still see missing (e.g. TreeTable control) who hurt JavaFX a lot more
than a missing validation system.

If you push every piece of highlevel feature (and yes I see validation
as a highlevel feature) into a Graphics and Control-Library - at least
this is my understanding of JavaFX  - then you end up with a big beast
you have to abandon one day once more.

So while I understand that having a standard validation system I'd like
to see resources invested in:
a) A validation visualization API at the control level
b) Implementing Controls
