Static FXMLLoader load method deprecation

The static methods on FXMLLoader are very confusing.

It is very easy to create errors by writing code that mixes static and instance FXMLLoader methods.

Everything that can be done with static load methods, can be done with instance FXMLLoader methods.
Other than confusion, the static load methods seem to provide little value to me.

Is it possible to have the static FXMLLoader methods deprecated for Java 8?
