Later OpenJFX Compatibilty with JDK 11 LTS

This was discussed on the list earlier this week, and the current 
proposal is to support OpenJFX N on JDK N-1 or later [1].

As part of a follow-on discussion, it was suggested that we might avoid 
eagerly breaking JDK N-2 unless/until there is something we need from 
JDK N-1 that makes breaking it necessary. Requiring later versions of FX 
to run on JDK 11 LTS would mean, for example, that OpenJFX 14 wouldn't 
be able to use language features from JDK 12 or JDK 13, which seems a 
bit restrictive.
