HEADS-UP: Proposal to bump the minimum boot JDK for FX to JDK 10

I created a pull request  for this, and discovered that the CI builds
for the GitHub sandbox are using JDK 9.0.4. Michael Ennen is fixing this
by switching both the Travis and Appveyor CI builds to use JDK 10 .
Given the disruptive nature of bumping the minimum, I think it is wise
to wait another day or two before taking any action on my proposal to
bump the minimum (we can and should still proceed to upgrade the CI
builds to use JDK 10). This will give others who might have concerns a
chance to comment.
