Yes, the community has to figure out what the essence of Flex really is. To me, it's an rapid-development
application framework, the combination of a procedural language with a declarative language,
and a widely-deployed runtime that can support RIAs. The runtime of the future for RIAs seems
to be native code for mobile devices and HTML/Javascript for browser apps. The best procedural
language is anything that can be compiled to these runtimes. MXML is a perfectly good declarative
language for UIs.

where innovation in the future needs to happen in this project.
