FlashPlayer and AIR for desktops will have all VMs in them, but I don't
think it is guaranteed that devices will be getting new AIR runtimes, I
believe that captive runtime is going to be way to target devices.

And also, there is only about 4.1 years left on that roadmap promise of 5
years.  But also note that there isn't some expiration date that Adobe is
guaranteed to act on.  If Apache Flex is a major factor for Adobe's major
customers, Adobe will take that into consideration.
