javafx.base requires java.desktop

There are two dependencies that would be nice to get rid of in the
future, but both will require work.
1) javafx.base requires java.desktop
This is to support the JavaBeans adapter classes. We could change this
to be an optional dependency since they aren't needed unless an
application uses them in which case the app would have loaded
java.desktop. I suspect that this would be a fairly small effort.
2) javafx.graphics requires java.desktop
The main reason for this is the implementation of printing, which uses
Java2D printing under the covers. Replacing the existing JavaFX printing
implementation with a native one would be a large effort.
