That may make more sense. What about allowing for a means to provide

I think this makes sense. I have actually been thinking about doing
something similar to address this issue:

I have been envisioning something more along the lines of this:

  myObject.myJavaFxControlProperty().bind(new ExpressionValue(person,

However, the end result would be the same - you'd be able to easily create a
binding between a property model and an expression.
