OK, but FlexJS is essentially wrapping JS constructs and presenting them in
AS.  The goal for the components is the present the same APIs to the
developer by wrapping and emulating where appropriate.  So, forget what the
current Flex Automation API does.  If you had a chance to design a new
automation API for FlexJS where the components are already wrapping  (that
uses plug-ins), could it be done?
