Where Rev could be going...

Since ActionScript, like Transcript/Rev, has a gamut of functionality  
(like creating controls, "cards" (frames), "scenes" (stacks),  
importing images, etc.) it would be possible to create a Rev stack  
that "translated" a narrow range of functionality into its  
Actionscript equivalents, and created equivalent controls (buttons,  
popup menus, etc.)

I don't think it would be worth the trouble... if the deliverable is  
Flash it's best to just create the project in Flash. It could be  
prototyped in Rev, then handed over to a Flash expert to recreate the  
functionality. Some script could actually be borrowed and rewritten,  
saving a lot of Flash dev time.
