Hi Doug,

I think spark is valid entirely without Fc. For me is one of the greatest
inclusions in Flex 4 since it changes the whole point of how to design and
program in Flex.

With Spark I removed the Presentation Model away since the AS3 view has all
the logic and the MXML represents it. All my code is skin oriented and is
really a pleasure. This is one of the things that make flex far away

The only problem with spark right now is that need urgently to have some
core components that today are obsolete in MX.

DateField, DateChooser, Tree, and so on...

Hope it comes quickly as soon as possible since I needed like water! :)
