JEP 253: UI control skins and input mapping discussion

I don't know much about skins and how they work, as I haven't implemented
custom controls. My only knowledge comes from rummaging around inside the
code to find some hacky way to get a particular effect, often via CSS.

I was hoping to read about the skins infrastructure, what it's for, how it
works etc in the jfx.s.c.skins package description but no such luck. Is the
plan for the JavaDocs to give a high level description of skinning, how to
implement it in your own code etc, or are there plans for other articles to
describe this?
