The new SkinBase is returning a modifiable version of the control's

behind-the-scenes copying of properties but I think that is covered on
One problem is, whenever I have a control MyControl using a skin
class MySkin I used to be able to change the style class of MyControl

This works for me. Maybe your css selectors need to be adjusted. After
all the node hierarchy no longer has an extra skin node.
Am I supposed to bind the styleClass property of my MySkinControl
instance to the styleClass of my MyControl instance?
In my opinion the control creation process is quite simple now. Create a
new control class, set the style class, and provide the default skin by
overriding createDefaultSkin(). Here you return an instance of your skin
which extends SkinBase. Which is where you observe the control
properties as usual. And use SkinBase.getChildren to add skin content.
