I suppose this is an answer to the OP question, but it does not seem so to 

When workers were introduced/tested/released, I went through the Beta cycle 
and subsequently devoloped multi-worker AIR applications layering the AIR 
SDK atop the last available Flex SDK from Adobe.

In the time since, I, like I presume most, have been waiting to see whether 
or not we can get back to that state of affairs using the Apache Flex SDK 
with the most current AIR SDK layered from Adobe.  Our current understanding 
is that yes, we can 'sort of try it', but because the new AAC2 Compiler 
cannot handle our Spark Componentry when injected via MXML, we really are 
not yet back to square one.  As far as I can tell, the same ambiguity now 
exists with regards to Workers.

Can someone post an official, unambiguous answer to where these key 
capabilities stand?

It is painfully clear that the Gaming Product Manager for all things 
Actionscript is doing his best to distance his team's efforts from those of 
the Flex community.  The Spoon folks wanted this challenge; will the Spoon 
and/or Adobe folks please stand up and give us their answer to where things 
stand especially since the release of the last, verbose, unhelpful Statement 
of Direction from Adobe since the killing off of ActionScript Next.

The concurrency features are part of the Flash Player (first added in 11.4) 
not the Adobe Flex SDK. The Adobe Flex SDK does support flash player 11.4 
and does compile against 11.5 and 11.6 but hasn't been fully tested with 
those versions.
