Not much, output behaviour could vary and still be a platform dependant 
but having one consistent environment that you can write your code in 
familiar language would save us from many obstacles. Those sort of 
things could be sorted out by having Flex IDE, while you choosing a 
target platform not available features could just grey-out or give you 
less options to choose from.
