  The Flex Framework uses a custom namespace (mx_internal) all over the 
place.  I believe the use case is "we need to expose this stuff so our 
code works, but don't have time to document it."
  You could say that is a cop out, which is fair.  But, it is also often 
a development reality when given timeline and budgets.  I expect that 
Apache may run into similar issues when we start doing releases.

     I was under the impression Adobe would not be supporting any 
compilers coming out of the Apache project.
