Key to success is a few backwards compatible releases which include the missing Spark
components and bugfixes. That is the big incentive to move to a new SDK for me.

What also could help is with each release include a list of bugs fixed which is prominent
on the website. I always find those hard to find with current adobe software releases (if
even available).
For me that is always an incentive to update software.

Biggest challenge is IMHO how we could deal with RSL / Framework caching.
