      Description

      JavaFX should enable a11y by default on Mac 10.9 and above and Window 7 and above.

      Currently this platforms require -Djavafx.accessible=true and older versions of the OSs the users needs -Djavafx.accessible.force=true.

      I proposed for supported platform to enable a11y without the -Djavafx.accessible=true, naturally setting it to true will not hurt, and setting it to false does disable it.
      Older OSs (Mac 10.8 or Windows Vista), do not get a11y on by default, but setting -Djavafx.accessible=true does enable it (?).
      The "javafx.accessible.force" should be removed.
