Draft JEP for new Packaging Tool (replacement for javapackager)

is it possible to get a clear statement on whether it will be possible
to package a JavaFX application with the new packager in a similar way
as it is possible right now with the old packager? The texts are a
little bit vague there. I just don't know whether it is possible to
create a packager which does not know anything about the GUI framework
which has been used by an application.
I would also like to express my concerns about the schedule. The next
Java release (11) will be an LTS release and that means that there will
not be any packager for all those people who will have to stick with
this release for a long time. This is a huge step backward for Java
because there is then no good deployment technology anymore for a long time.
