Again, how do you propose to do that? You certainly don't want that behavior all of the time
- the fill flag allows you to turn it on and off.

Still not understanding. By default, if you put a Border in a BoxPane, it won't fill the available
space. It will fill only its preferred size.

Also, what you are describing is *not* consistent with Label and ImageView. The alignment
styles of those components control the alignment of their own content, not how they are positioned
within a parent container (exactly the way the corresponding styles in BoxPane behave).
