  That is good to hear; and I would recommend Adobe include it in their 
messaging somehow.  If the white paper can be modified to clarify this 
point great.  Even if not; please let the Adobe presenters on the Flex 
User Group tour highlight that point.  It makes things sound much more 
positive than saying "Adobe will donate an AS3 only Falcon Compiler."  
People have asked me "Why won't I be able to use MXML"  and I didn't 
have an answer.
