Macromedia to Open Flash Player Source

Can you imagine if people started making the UI out of Flash 4. Or better yet borrowing its alpha transparency layer. There are a lot of cool effects that one can do with Flash."

Should Flash be integrated into Mozilla? Or should their tasty, optimized vector-drawing code be cannibalized for the inevitable SVG implementation?

do you really think Flash is that heavy ? i've tried it a few times and i've found it to be much much lighter than Java...
