That is your view, others could very well be more pragmatic.  I would rather
have the choice to have a *full working* binary-only Flash than what we

I appreciate that we would strongly prefer public source access, but I doubt
that will ever happen for Flash.  I guess you also have not inspected the
full source of (say) OO for security flaws ;-)
