It's not that you can't use a framework and "vanilla" js, it's that it  
has been shown that these candy frameworks that hide vanilla method  
calls to the DOM severely kill performance.  ... For the sake of just  
entering a $() dollar sign? That's a crazy tradeoff but thousands do  
it everyday. For alittle dev time saved, you kill the actual  
applications performance.

I was just saying that using AS, you can already have a "framework"  
you use that is light, but the compiler would transcode it to the  
fastest possible js implementation, since it's now hands off.
