I don't want to just go editing your work without some discussion, so I'm
throwing the discussion here. There are some components that I don't see
the need to be "spark'ed" nor do I consider them missing. Specifically:

Grid (group + tilelayout)
LinkBar (button bar + skin) <- new skin could be made easily
LinkButton (button + skin) <- new skin could be made easily
PopupButton (calloutbutton) <- needs to be generalized from just mobile
Spacer (mx:spacer or rect)
TileList (9as already posted list+tilelayout)
ToggleButtonBar (buttonbar + skin) <- new skin could be made easily
VRule and HRule (rect)
All Charting (they are already very spark-ish)

While I get the intention I think that to go down this path will cause
confusion and also reduce people's abilities to see new features and
functionality (specifically in the case of TileList, HRule/VRule,
LinkButton... well all of them).

I would think that these can just be marked as resolved and ended.

With charting I could agree that there could be an update to make skinning
them simpler but I have done many custom skins already with these
