Subject Re: FlexJS next?

I just looked at Web Components, albeit briefly. I'm under the impression
that a) it is geared for HTML 5 and b) some parts are still not
well-defined (e.g., Decorators). Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

One of the nice things about FlexJS is that if you want to use something
like Web Components, you can. There is already a few HTML 5 components in
the project, but they are really just starters. It would be great if
someone could build those out, too.

The current set up might not work as seamlessly as you describe, but
that's today; anything is possible in the future.
