There should be a wiki page about "No Roadmap, only Contribution),  
more to the front page. It seems that from the beginning of the Flex  
transition from Adobe to Apache, the opensourceness of the project  
gets confused with as you put it, the corporate commitment (which  
rests at 0).

Seems like the Roadmap word that keeps being used needs to be called  
an Ideamap, since ideas are abstract and no deterministic. A Roadmap  
conjures up deterministic tasks.
