Impossible to implement custom control with a StyleableObjectProperty<Font> on JavaFX9

This sounds like a reasonable issue to discuss a resolution for. Can you 
please file a Jira issue and we can look into our options (either making 
a reapplyCss() method available, or following something along the lines 
of your suggestion)?

Also, thanks for taking the time to test JDK 9 - this is exactly the 
kind of feedback we need.
