We are currently about to build a team for developing BB10 apps (focus more on Enterprise/Rich media-Publishing Apps). We zeroed in on AIR platform based on following consideration that Cascades required new training on C++/Qt and for Webworks( too many frameworks no common ground, product/tooling support) and also people here are fluent with flex.
I write this post to ask you all to pour in your advice, expertise so that this can help us and the BB10 Air community
1. How good is flex support on BB10 (Support on Flex mobile components. Can be used??)
2. Compatibility of AIR runtime as BB10 SDK 3
3. Pointers for using AS3 BB10 components in MXML
4. Testing Considerations
Any other advice/resources would also help..

You can go with MXML as long as you do not want to use the QNX components. This is perfectly fine for apps like games or somewhere where you want your own style. If you want the BB10 look and feel you have to code the UI in actionscript. But now there is also CSS support so it is really no big problem.
To get a better idea you can take a look at this video from Julian:
there are also great examples on github:
I can only say the best about working with Flex on BlackBerry 10. The performance is great, the tools work well.. only problem is that for BlackBerry the focus lies on Native and HTML5.
