The majority of Flash "programmers" don't use the timeline at all. A  
lot of designers who script in Flash may well use the timeline more.

In comparing Flash and Rev, you would want to think about a specific  
task, then it's easy to show how it might be done in one tool versus  
the other. Trying to explain the entire difference in philosophy is a  
bit harder.
