[REVIEW REQUEST] Disabling TableView column reordering

What if I want one column fixed, e.g. column 1, but the remaining columns reorder-able?
Could there be a way to specify ordering constraints on the columns?
E.g. columns 1-3 can be in any order but must be before columns 4-6, which can also be in any order.

I would like to support this use case in both TableView and TreeTableView by way of a 'columnReorderingEnabled' property (so, columnReorderingEnabledProperty(), setColumnReorderingEnabled(boolean) and isColumnReorderingEnabled()).
