What's required for the legal ok? Is that like a full copyright/patent 
audit? Or is it more of checking the license requirements, or getting 
signoff from the current copyright holder? Or both? Or something else? :-)

It's already licensed under Apache 2.0, so that's a good start.

Anyway, a lot of the current popular plan seems to revolve around doing 
direct bindings from Flex into JS/DOM objects and not using a Flash 
layer at all, so it does seem like it may not be needed. Still, it seems 
like an option, and there is useful core items in there, like 
BitmapData, etc. that are already implemented.

Maybe the legal overhead outweighs the benefits of an already completed 
code base?
