Don't really agree with you here. Even Adobe started investigating
JavaScript generation out of ActionScript code. If the creator of
Flex, ActionScript and Flash investigate cross-compilation of
ActionScript to JavaScript, why should Apache Flex ignore that
approach?

I see one of the chances of an Apache Flex versus Adobe Flex that the
community can drive the project into a direction, where an HTML5 based
runtime for Flex will be created. If you'd rather see that as a
separate project next to Flex (e.g. Apache Falcon), that's of course
an option.

Is there any legally binding agreement between Apache Flex and Adobe
that the company will always provide a runtime environment for Flash
for the next 3-5 years? If not, Adobe can at any time pull the plug on
- let's say - desktop browser Flash Player, and only offer AIR/mobile
App generation out of ActionScript.

Just my thoughts, I'm aware of the fact that quite a few people will not agree.
