"Yes, But.." :)

Kinda done it. The support on the Clie is limited to Flash 5 and earlier. 
Plus it's a standalone viewer not integrated into the browser, so YouTube 
and Google Video are still out. And there are myriad other limitations:

I agree it's feasible; just a question of Palm and Adobe working together. 
Palm's got a lot of other issues on its hands; the uncertainty around the 
platform may be a reason why Adobe and other vendors (notably, Skype) aren't 
investing much effort in it. Doesn't mean I love my Treo any less.
