If the answer to this was "NO", it would mean we're doing something
terribly wrong that we need to fix. I have no immediate knowledge on how to
do this, hence Nir's suggestion about asking on adoption-discuss would be

The latter sounds the least intrusive approach.
Michael and Nir have interesting comments in their replies. It's not a
simple thing.

At this moment, I think openjfx-discuss is the best mailing list. There are
a number of conceptual things that need to be sorted first, and it would be
good to keep the discussion alive on this list. Once there is something
tangible, e.g. a prototype, we can move the discussion to openjfx-dev.

Thanks for the ideas!
