Flash and PBBGs

I've been looking into Flash as a possible alternate UI for my PBBG Perenthia because of the benefits of being able to write a socket server that Flash can connect to and provide real time updates to players. The only way to accomplish this in a web scenario is to constantly poll the server for updates, rather than have them pushed to the client. I am trying to weigh the options and impact of this along with the UI beneifts Flash would deliver, such as animated characters, mobs, etc.
