It is probably too late to be really consistent. For example in GridPane 
you have

     add(Node child, int columnIndex, int rowIndex)

whereas for the transforms you have "row, column" as Pavel has pointed out.

The only thing you can and should do is to make at least the builders 
consistent with the
class they build.
