Embedding Mac native widgets into a Scene

JavaFX provides a great set of widgets that are pretty complete, but a few
lag behind behind their native counterparts on some platforms. This is
especially noticeable with the Mac text field widget, which has things like
integrated spelling/grammar checking, auto correct, services, speech
recognition and so on.

WebKit manages to expose all this functionality despite that HTML is not
the native Mac UI framework. So I am wondering how hard it is for JFX to do
the same. However, I know very little about how WebKit does this or how
easy it'd be to replicate in the Java world. Are there any experts on the
list who could comment?
