Subject Re: To AS4 or not (was: Re: ASC 2.0 and Falcon)

The question is what amount of work does it require to port from AS3 to 
AS4 ?
It does not seems that the difference is as big as between AS2 and AS3 

I don't understand, what you mean in fact.
Is the work required is about to target stage3D by using starling2D as a 
rendering layer? or is there more to do on the language side, needing to 
rewrite big parts of the framework?

- If targeting AS4 means that we can't target AS3 as backward 
compatibility because of deep AS3 rewrite its nonsense for flex.
- If targetting FlashPlayerNext means that we "just" need to change the 
rendering layer, even if some features of Flex can't be used 
(accessibility, native internationalization etc). The question is : Does 
the framework architecture allow it or is it too monolithic to make it
