None, and I would bet that it will stay that way.

apps. The best procedural language is anything that can be compiled to these runtimes. MXML
is a perfectly good declarative language for UIs.

Maybe the real discussion should be less about supporting AVM3 and more about supporting a
native compile framework - something like haXe NME maybe (already open source). How much of
Adobe's LLVM based iOS AOT source is open? (if any)

For Javascript, there's already Jangaroo (open source):
