In the end, some files will contain your change.  But for now, let's
please let SimpleCSSStyleImpl retain its simplicity until we agree on a
different naming scheme.

We are not saying we only support AS features.  We are saying PAYG.  Some
implementations will only support AS in a straightforward way, and others
will do more work to implement more features or not implement full
fidelity.  Small amounts of code build up to bigger amounts of code.
There is no one set of components that folks must use.

Clearly, it must be possible to create good apps without numeric font
weight since most everyone on this list has created a Flash-based Flex app
and could not use numeric font weight.  So, that means to me that numeric
font weight doesn't belong in the simplest or most basic implementation.

Thanks,
