I am. I'm sure that there will be some who are also interested in
downloadable Active-X flow objects. This is something that I suggested 
about six months ago (to nobody in particular).The trick is that to do
this properly would require a complete "publishing API" accessible 
from Java (and perhaps Active-X. That would require another long spec 
development cycle. Perhaps Copernican solutions could publish their 
API as a W3C Note for standardization at some point in the future.

A "worse is better" approach could using existing "opaque-box" applet 
APIs but many interesting flow objects would be impossible in that
