Maybe we have different definitions of "duplication".  When a SWC like
JQuery.swc wants to use the Label from HTML.swc it doesn't subclass Label
or copy/paste code, it simply uses a manifest.xml to map the HTML.swc's
Label to its own URI.  I don't see any maintenance issues with doing that,
but I could be missing something.

This "decision" was made during the POC phase.  The same technique is used
in the regular Flex SDK so s:ArrayList maps to mx:ArrayList.  It isn't
anything new.
