People using Eclipse as their IDE will not have fun with that I guess 
because their IDE will not compile the code anymore, so one can't use 
Eclipse anymore to provide patches - nothing you really care I guess.

I don't argue that you should not do this because Eclipse does not yet 
support it (which is a shame for Eclipse) but you are excluding other 
VMs who don't support those concepts - most notable invoke dynamic - 
this makes a community port of JavaFX to iOS fairly impossible.
