Yes, that was my understanding, which I tried to convey when I wrote:

     ...it seems Flash is very much alive, just changing the engine
     from a plugin to WebKit


AFAIK the authoring system will remain pretty much the same, but the 
output will no longer be limited to the plugin, able to run natively in 
any HTML5-capable browser.
