Hi Jonathan,

regarding skins, while I don't see anything immediately wrong with the
published API, I have trouble seeing how making skin implementations public
is going to be useful. In particular, the JEP states that one of the
success metrics is

Projects that depend on JavaFX internal APIs, in particular Scene Builder,

> with no loss of functionality.

Can you, or someone else from those projects, give a concrete example how
making skins public will help?
