I'll play devil's advocate for a moment, and say "Tamarin".  It goes  
like this: someone claims Adobe and Mozilla are in cahoots, and that  
triggers the memory that Adobe open-sourced its AS engine to Mozilla,  
and then the wheels start turning.  It's a lazy thought process, of  
course, because what's really gained?  Did they team up to make sure  
the spec results in as little modification to Tamarin as possible?   
So they're teaming up out of laziness?  I don't get it either, but  
you asked.
