We have control of the SDK, not the language. The language as part of the
AVM is still controlled by Adobe. We can use the compiler to "adjust" the
code as it's compiled to simulate the changes we may be interested in,
however this code would be much slower than if it was running on the core
language from the AVM. Ultimately I would recommend against people thinking
they are going to change the Date object or the floating point value of
Number or other deep language features.

We've discussed this on forums though so I won't go into it too much more.
