Very nicely put. This *should be* official policy in any case :)
The real problem with Flash isn't even the non-free player. It's the non-free authoring tool chain every content creator is locked into, plus that even with the tools the resulting flash file is not fully editable. The result is an impenetrable magic gimmick, it's not supposed to be examined, deconstructed, rebuilt, improved. It's teaching kids to be consumers, not to be creators.
