Correct - in order to use the current APIs in FXML, we'll need to use a builder. 

Also, since it looks like some of the APIs take property objects, we'll probably need to modify FXMLLoader. FXML doesn't currently provide a way to get a reference to a property model - we'll need to add a new keyword and/or a new resolution operator to support this:

 <bar><fx:property value="myInstance.myProperty"/><bar>


<Foo bar="~myInstance.myProperty"/>
