How does getProperties() method work?

Node.getProperties returns an ObservableMap which you then can use to 
store any information you want.  It is similar to 
getUserData/setUserData which actually store the user data in the same map.
It has nothing to do with JavaFX properties of a node.

We should probably improve the documentation of this method, the current 
javadoc doesn't seem to clarify this.
