Performance Improvements for Desktop AIR?

Is there any word from Adobe about whether or not they plan to make performance improvements to the Desktop version of AIR?
AIR on mobile has two features I desperately need when publishing Flash games on Steam: Stage quality and/or GPU render mode for bitmaps.

Both of these features have a lot of votes on Adobe Tracker/Bugbase, but are marked as not a priority and there's been no comment from Adobe for months:

Without these features I'm considering finally ditching Flash and moving to Unity. There's no point in me developing on a platform that isn't supported, and many ex-Flash devs I've spoken to feel the same way.

I also wrote a blog post that goes into a lot more detail about my specific situation, if anyone is interested: Mid-Project Crisis | Kupo Games

Agreed! I'm developing a AIR game for Steam with heavy usage of the display list. Simpily being able to change quality settings in AIR would be so amazingly helpful - How is it NOT supported? Why is stage quality settings only available to Mobile and Flash Player ?

Update: I think I’ve found a solution to my problem. With the help of HTMLLoader and LocalConnection, I can get Flashplayer running inside AIR, and I can get the best of both (AIR features AND stage quality from Flashplayer). This is a reasonable work-around I think.
