Rick, Sorry if I offended you by comparing Signals to Cairngorm ;-)

I agree, my point is that without competition between different
solutions (IoC frameworks for example) the progress won't be possible
and we wouldn't be where we are now. What is better for some may not
be better for others.

At the point when Signals become the industry standard used in most of
Flex projects I wouldn't hesitate to include it in the SDK but I don't
think it's the case now. The other reason to merge Signals (or any
other library) into SDK could be applying it to SDK classes internals
e.g. to improve binding performance. However in this case the
dedicated low level solution would probably be faster.
