Cleaning up Control codebase - How to deal with StyleableProperty cast

This seems to look fine - IntelliJ still complains about an unnecessary 
cast, but it is better than having an unchecked cast.

I'm happy for this to be done, but I think it would be best to get David 
Grieve's +1 first too.

Thanks for your help so far - it is making the JavaFX code base much 
nicer. I've just switched IntelliJ to make warnings far more obvious to 
me, so I'll be trying to keep on top of them also.
