JRuby brings me ~ +30 MB. I tried to use Nashorn also but it is so slow.
I'm thinking to continue with WebView.

The question is why there is HTML 5 Web Workers. Why there is no like that
for JavaFX threading model.


Expensiveness comes from JavaScript code that runs on UI thread. Script
execution takes long time normally. For example docbook conversion
execution starts from here
