Lots of decisions regarding Spark were made to make integration with FC
possible.  IMHO, we could have retro-fitted a new skinning model onto the MX

The community can decide that Spark is not where they want to put their
energy and decide to put it somewhere else.  I plan to use my whiteboard
space for that something else.
