Which I think we all know what this is alluding to, from this point  
on, the Flash Player will be known for Games, what business is going  
to make an enterprise app on a gaming vm...

Which means, Flex will never exist in AS4, I agree with Mike completely here.

This is been my argument that eventually Apache Flex needs to  
diversify somehow.

PS I don't think Apache Flex needs to stand for what Flex is today  
though, and this is where innovation in the future needs to happen in  
this project.
