Proposed schedule for JavaFX 16

As a reminder, RDP1 for JavaFX 16 starts on January 7, 2021 at 16:00 UTC 
(08:00 Pacific time). Given the upcoming holidays, that's a little over 
1 working week from now.

During rampdown of JavaFX 16, the "master" branch of the jfx repo will 
be open for JavaFX 17 fixes.

New features currently targeted to JavaFX 16 should be retargeted to 
JavaFX 17.

We will follow the same process as previous releases for getting fixes 
into JavaFX 16 during rampdown. I'll send a message with detailed 
information later, but candidates for fixing during RDP1 are P1-P3 bugs 
(as long as they are not risky) and test or doc bugs of any priority. 
Some small enhancements might be considered during RDP1, but they 
require explicit approval; the bar will be high for such requests.
