Erik, I just think that meeting or exceeding expectations is a key to
success.  With volunteer work forces and no hierarchical organizational
constraints it is dangerous to set expectations.

One can certainly infer direction based on past actions and current actions.
There is actual code being written to try to get Flex to run without Flash.
There are discussions going on about JS output and framework rewrites.  A
good marketing person can create excitement about what is happening now
without having to promise too far into the future.
