I don't think the Express package has a goal of emulating regular Flex
APIs.  It's goal is to aggregate the APIs in the Basic package which are
tilted towards native browser APIs.  Padding, for example, would work like
it does in the browser, along with Margin.  In Flex, there was no margin
style, and thus padding worked a bit differently.  It would be cool to see
a component set that tries to emulate the Spark/MX APIs without promising
a full port of Spark/MX.  For example, a Spark-like Button would have a
label and click event, but wouldn't promise to extend UIComponent, or
allow setting of masks and scrollrects and other low-level Flash stuff.
Any volunteers?

My 2 cents,
