the mx namespce
Just a weird top level thing I noticed about the next generation Flash platform:
Actionscript 3 reorganizes all of the intrinsic Flash Player classes into neat and tidy packages. It makes alot of sense to do this, now that Flash is really maturing as a platform.
Now we have Flex 2 upon us and I am a slight puzzled on why Macromedia kept the mx namespace for Flex packages. It is obvious that backwards compatibility and familiarity are the main reasons, but it seems weird that as they shed the MX from all of the product branding, that they would choose to still keep the name core to the platform as the top level flex package name.
Instead of using 'mx', 'flex' might have been a better choice considering they took the time to reorganize the entire Flash platform as we know it.
No big deal, just an observation.
