Kevin asked for developers opinions on this issue, just thought I'd leave
my own.

Didn't have time to read the thread thoroughly enough, don't have much time
at the moment to do it. Apologies for that.

Just wanted to make a comment about the CSS support for this feature. I
think if you add it, it would be great if it follows the CSS web spec or at
least it doesn't go against it.
I think there's a lot of value if we start more and more following the web
css spec, it would mean a web designer could eventually transfer his skills
directly to javafx or that we could use tools used in the web or that we
could simply copy paste a CSS web example into JavaFX and it would just
work (though we're still a bit far from that but could be a possibility in
the future).

There are a good deal of big companies already involved in developing web
css, I'm sure they've put a lot of thought into it (not speaking of the
early days of CSS which was very bad).
