Christopher Dutz gave me the impression that all Adobe would have to do is
place a pom.xml alongside each playerglobal.swc.  Is there more to it?

I guess the goal behind that is to be able to get those artefact from a 
legal repo, we can not legaly provide them from inside the mavenized apache 
flex sdk, I guess what Chris want to do, is to make our sdk public via the 
apache repo and get those last artifacts from adobe, doing so, if only the 
the apache flex sdk is publicly available, that should not be a problem for 
companies to host internaly the new structure of the new sdk and the old 
structure of the others, they could use fm<6 and fm 6 on different projects. 
The only thing is they shouldn't have to use the mavenizer to convert the 
SDKs otherwize they whould break the compatibility with the old flexmojos.
The mavenizer should be use only by us, in this case to mavenized our sdk.

The main issue with Adobe making its stuff Maven friendly is legal.  There
is stuff in the AIR SDK that Adobe doesn't want to put in the "open" world.
It appears from my reading that plenty of other Maven apps are built with
closed source code via "mavenizers" that copy downloaded assets into local
repos.  Why is this not ok for big companies?

I'm confused where you said in the other response that adt.jar has
everything you need, but here you say the entire AIR SDK is needed.
