Looks cool. I think for people to review this it would be good to have an understanding of its intended usage, in particular how hard it should be pushed. 

What level of performance is the JFX 3D library aimed at? Obviously this will depend somewhat on the hardware but if I was running on a decent, new PC what spectrum of 3D use cases should I expect to cater for with jfx 3D. 

Eg for gaming: are we looking at Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Minecraft, Club Penguin, Angry Birds?

For modeling: could it do photo realistic CAD (eg http://www.livecad.net/EN/Products/3d-home-design-software.php), or complex scientific modeling (http://www.3dscience.com/3D_Models/index.php) with or without live editing and animations?

For 3D UI: how '3D' can my ui be and still be performant. Can I build animated, shaded carousels with reflections and shadows with each entry containing complex 3d scenes (http://www.arm.com/community/partners/product_images/2755.jpg)? Can I embed video on an animated 3d node? Can I build full 3D desktop paradigms with tabbable windows (containing scenes) and transition animations, skewing, warping (like Mac's "to trash" animation) and general coolness (http://www.artefactgroup.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/Screen-shot-2009-09-21-at-10.24.50-PM-590x444.png or http://www.rlsbb.com/arcsoft-totalmedia-theatre-v5-0-1-87-lz0/ )?
