Yes there are plenty of reasons to continue.
The most striking one: You don't have any direct access to iPhone APIs
from Actionscript. You thus can't use any iPhone native controls (etc)
in your iPhone enabled Flash application.
This new CS5 feature might be useful for some things, but above all i
guess it's best to file it under "publicity stunts", at least for now
(well, you decide). Adobe probably just did it to put pressure on Apple
and get them to allow the real deal.
Oh yeah, and there's still haxe...
