I welcome flash's depart for one reason and one reason only.
Not just talking iphone here. No mobile device parses it properly. Obviously this is a big issue for adobe ... if they don't hurry up, not sure it can survive in future.
Just mobility in general. It is slow loading no matter what you use to load it, if you are on the go (notebooks on wifi included.) I like what you can do with it, but the cost (loading times) is not worth the benefit (good looking). I'd rather have a slightly less "rich" appearance, and go for functionality and speed.
Take for example, Cisco's entire web-based curriculum, Net Academy. There is no reason it needs to be Flash. Navigation is a pain in the ass, and you can't print easily from the site. Maybe the print thing is by design, but the navigation part still sucks.
