If possible, I would like to see a change in this policy to not ship 
certain fragments of the build. Especially I would like to have the 
possibility to use a JavaFX based on OpenGL on Windows too. This would 
make Java truly cross-platform and might offer a lot of possibilities 
for better integration of external graphics tools like for example tools 
based on JOGL. It might also offer the possibility to support WebGL in 
the WebView in the future so that this gap can be closed too. Am I just 
dreaming? What do others think?
