This is incorrect.

Falcon *already* supports enough of MXML to compile a correctly-running version
of Checkinapp, the test app that is part of the SDK. Falcon's support for .mxml,
.css, and .properties still needs lots of polish -- especially in the areas of
databinding, states, and MXML-specific error reporting -- but at least 80% of
the this work is complete.

That is good to hear; and I would recommend Adobe include it in their messaging somehow. If the white paper can be modified to clarify this point great. Even if not; please let the Adobe presenters on the Flex User Group tour highlight that point. It makes things sound much more positive than saying "Adobe will donate an AS3 only Falcon Compiler." People have asked me "Why won't I be able to use MXML" and I didn't have an answer.
