The main issue is one of dependency & JSR-ness. If the Validation API was part of JavaSE, it would have been a no-brainer. But with JavaFX going into JavaSE, and Validation being only in JavaEE, we have a problem. Which is, actually, one reason we haven't put in a validation framework yet at all in JavaFX, so we don't reinvent the wheel nor create an untenable dependency from SE to EE.
