Dart as a language may be more accessible to non-Flex coders,
if it really kicks off that is.

I've nothing against Actionscript myself, but perhaps it will always turn 
off people because it used to be 1 - on - 1 to Flash?

and Dart also has JavaScript interop support,
has really nice language features (factory, future, overloading, ...).

Those can all be added via Falcon of course.

Something like dartflash is also available in ActionScript, namely
JooFlash<https://github.com/CoreMedia/jangaroo-libs/tree/master/jooflash/src/main/joo>,
which again is compiled to JavaScript, currently by the Jangaroo compiler
and hopefully soon by FalconJx.
So what exactly is the advantage of using Dart instead of ActionScript for
something Flex-like?
Just asking,
-Frank-
