Adobe opens swf/flv files to developers

Adobe has decided to open up their proprietary file formats, .flv and .swf, to developers in order to secure their spot in the future of technology development. Imagine what this will do to the mobile market...
The Open Screen Project is working to enable a consistent runtime environment – taking advantage of Adobe® Flash® Player and, in the future, Adobe AIR™ -- that will remove barriers for developers and designers as they publish content and applications across desktops and consumer devices, including phones, mobile internet devices (MIDs), and set top boxes. The Open Screen Project will address potential technology fragmentation by allowing the runtime technology to be updated seamlessly over the air on mobile devices. The consistent runtime environment will provide optimal performance across a variety of operating systems and devices, and ultimately provide the best experience to consumers.

Does this completely kill Microsoft Silverlight?
