Yes, I think so, but you'd have to rewrite it even if the new VM ran AS3 because the new VM
doesn't have DisplayObject or Event!

Sorry, I don't know the plans for AIR.

So the only way to make flex run on the new VM is to rewrite the SDK code, and with no easy
way to do so?
Do you know if the next AIR runtime will only work for AS4?

of an AS4 compiler. But it's been many developer-years of work for us and it isn't trivial.
ActionScript is more complex than MXML.
