Regarding the guys who wait for Alex to share his thoughts. I dont want to
speak for him but I think that he shared some of his vision in the thread
about FalconJS and the slide presentation. And I think that he stated that
he needs help from the community to create something that makes sense and
complete the vision.

Also about the ones who think that Flex is safe for the next 3-4 years.
That may be true but a complete rewrite or a complete refactoring or
targeting other platforms will take A LOT of time to be completed. Planning
something like this early is critical.
