I would never consider for a second coding FXML "directly".  I have only tweaked it by hand occasionally after creating it with SceneBuilder. SB is an important selling point for JavaFX and should be included in the JDK, it shouldn't even be a separate download.

Either with complex layouts or custom controls. "Real" programmers probably use FXML directly or even just code it in Java. So the "return on investment" probably is fairly low and thus the resources can be much better spent on the core. IMHO.
