You're probably right, but for the minority who did write separate business
logic, I think this will be the path of least resistance.  And for those who
didn't, it still might be easier to refactor their code to get separation
than have to rewrite every line.  Anyway, that's the angle I'm taking for
now.  I can certainly be convinced otherwise.  And it has the advantage that
we have in Apache Flex, every line of code we need to make it happen.

Now where is the link to your slides?
