Does Java 8 delay mean less app developer feedback?

> To use the specific example you cited -- https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-21415 -- that one would be some extra work for FX 2.X and it would produce something that isn't as useful as you might expect, since there are quite a few public classes that aren't open-sourced in FX 2. We will rely on the fact that by the time FX 8 ships, all of the classes that will need to go into a javafx-src.zip will be open source. So, no, RT-21415 is not under consideration for FX 2.X. Sorry about that.
Right, it just simply isn't possible for us to do this on 7 because the sources were closed, and only starting with 8 are the sources open.
