ResponsivePane is an attempt to do something in that way, but I chose a slightly different approach where the system automatically switches between different layouts and CSS files depending on the window's size. It has a common area (reusable nodes) and then specific layouts per size.

It worked very well, I used it to transition between desktop, tablet en phone screens. Except problems with higher screen DPI's, which I was not able to solve because the DPI info JavaFX gave me was inaccurate.
