Maybe you haven't read my email which started this thread: This discussion 
started because Deepa from Adobe said that it could be a possibility, and 
said that if sufficient interest for it was shown on the ML, it will help 
make it happen.

Second, we all know that a lot of people don't care about the Design View.
The question was more to see if there are still people that do care, and if 
there are peope willing to contribute to it.
And with 30 positive responses in 6 hours, in a time when most Americans 
were sleeping, I think it's safe to say there is interest from Apache Flex 
devs, either for themselves, because they think it will benefit Flex, or 
because they think we could create some cool stuff if we have access to the 
DV source code.
