I did not say that a imageview IS a billboard, and i also did not say 
that "in 3d" it is always oriented towards the camera.

Remember, JavaFX Nodes can take 3D transforms right now. I do not think 
there is a notion of "3D or 2D" for an ImageView.

The previous example code shows how an image view could behave (possibly 
if the transforms work like i think they do) LIKE a billboard.

You could test this in 2.2 kind of, but you wouldn't be able to see the 
actual results i think. (since cameras don't move yet)
