No offense but sometimes I think you over think problems. Apache is  
not an enterprise in respect to each project.

Having the same perspective about a project like FlashCatalyst and  
expecting that from Apache Flex is going to keep you up at night. This  
project would be iterative.

 From the looks of it I can count more than 3 people that seem to be  
interested in this project and we have only talked about it for a day.

IMO I think you should just give the FC thing a rest and save your  
energy for things that actually could manifest.
