Adobe opens Flash--How much?

What the adobe announcement includes other than removing restrictions on
using the specs and protocols  is the ability  (apparently) to distribute
"adobe flash player for devices" and "adobe AIR for devices" for free.
Since the flash player is a lightweight implementation that incorporates
codecs, the question I have, is whether this permits the XO to incorporate
this lightweight flash player compatible with content available on the net
in the base build?  If so, let's do it.  Here is an ideal example where we
should not be purists.  The following document compares what is in the
"flash lite" player relative to Flash 8 and 9 for PCs.
