Two items  for us

1) focus on bug-free functionality over new features. 
2) require a U.S. $50.00 a year fee per corporate entity for commercial 
application usage. This is very reasonable and  would finally secure 
JavaFX's future as a development platform.  

I feel without 2) above we will find ourselves wandering around 
cyberspace hoping for a benefactor or the charity of volunteers and 
their spare time.
