If I may ask, why do you think it should not be part of the SDK?  If we can
provide a robust abstraction layer - for ex. IndexedDB for browsers/SQLLite
for AIR, I think that would be a fantastic addition to Flex.  Or at least
provide a least common denominator like storing and retrieving just
key/value pairs.  Imagine writing applications using Flex and being able to
write to a local database without having to worry about the underlying
technology/platform.  I am pretty sure that would be a very welcome feature
for our end users.

Anyways, I dont think I have a very strong argument because I dont have any
code to show right now.  Let me build the APIs and post it withe code
samples first :-)
