I wasn't suggesting Spark skin classes create DOM objects. I was
proposing we write JavaScript replacements to Skin classes that would be
used instead. I agree that the component classes themselves would need
to be compiled to JavaScript. We therefore have two challenges:
1. Ensuring that our compiler can convert ActionScript to efficient,
concise JavaScript.
2. Writing "HTML5" replacements to the component skin classes.
