I understand why you are writing this and in principle I agree. But please
understand that this is not about fixing sloppy programming in a college
project but affects whether we can use a technology for the next few years
where the problems that stop us now may have gone away or otherwise not to
be able to continue our product using Java (at least until we know where
Java/JFX is going) and move to something native instead throwing away huge
investments. The world is just not that simple.

possible outcome?
