ChartsLayoutAnimator didn't appear once on my jdeps analysis from a few 
weeks back, so it hasn't been on my radar as a possible candidate for 
making public. I don't imagine this will be something we try to bring 
out in JDK 9, but if it is something that is generally useful and 
important a bug should be filed for it.

I agree with Kevin - half the battle is just knowing what is generally 
useful. It would be wise to have an umbrella issue in JBS that tracks 
all 'make XXX public' issues. If we get a few of these kind of issues 
filed I'll make an umbrella issue.
