Indeed, a state machine, is a state machine ... is a state machine. No
matter what syntax (XML notation) one comes up with, it will look and
smell like SCXML (and possibly be less expressive).

I also agree (based on the cumulative 2-3 minutes I've spent looking
at the SWF notation) that the mapping or glue should be fairly
obvious. Therefore, whenever one of us here has a few cycles to
contribute, we can begin making progress with SCXML in SWF.
