FWIW, keep in mind we also expect TLF to get VP signature this week as well
and BlazeDS is in progress.  IMO, All three are standalone entities and
should have top-level project status.  I don't know how hard it is to move
the current trunk into an directory called sdk, but that would be my first
choice as in, when you go here:
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/flex/

You currently see:
    branches
    external
    import2
    site
    tags
    trunk
    utilities
    whiteboard

And I would like us to have:
    blazeds
    external
    falcon
    import2
    site
    tlf
    sdk
        branches <-- these 3 are moved down from the top level
        tags
        trunk
    utilities
    whiteboard

I'm not sure now is the right time to be moving trunk so I'd be willing to
live with some inconsistency right now and just have
    blazeds
    branches
    external
    falcon
    import2
    site
    tags
    tlf
    trunk <-- this is the current top-level trunk
    utilities
    whiteboard

Thoughts?
