But they are JS frameworks and native dev is not comparable to multi 
platform development.
In fact i think that some flex users already made a switch to native dev 
because of the lack of visibility for flex future.

I can't wait to ear about what you have to propose for the #2 objective. 
Maybe thats why you are more confident about the "keep AS3" solution.
But your final objective is to get full backward compatibility at the end?
Because you are the one who convinced me that a full rewrite was 
inavitable, so if we don't have full compability at the end of the 
rewrite, why using AS3 is so important for third party code already 

Do you think that trying to keep things like AS3 won't be paid by huge 
performances issues?
