No thanks. I've worked as a Flash developer and Flash is so often misused (put on sites that don't *need* it) that using the iPhone is almost like an oasis.
Flash is for interactive 2D animation (and AJAX with HTML5 and CSS is rapidly making that only a high end need).
Also, Adobe hasn't bothered to make a non-bloated, non-buggy, non-privacy and security flawed version of Flash for the Mac yet, so why should I have faith they'd do it for the iPhone?
Yeah, I want Flash cookies and buffer overflows on a device that has all my personal info and GPS coordinates... what could possibly go wrong?

I know Flash is everywhere and it would be nice to have on the iPhone, but QuickTime already works on the iPhone and savvy web hosts are including it in iPhone optimized versions of their sites. I'd rather continue to have software that "just works" than any kind of bloated, security-risk prone software. My 2¢.
