While I agree there is no all-in-one adobe-like flash IDE, there is a
lot Free Software tool that allow to create flash content:
Ming (flash gordon worst enemy)
"""Ming is a library for generating Macromedia Flash files (.swf),
written in C, and includes useful utilities for working with .swf
It has wrappers that allow it to be used in C++, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Perl."""
A few game experiments I've done with it:
Combined with the easily embeddable gnash player
(http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/), I believe it can lead to a
decent desktop game distribution platform.
Haxe and MTASC are very good even better candidate:
It seems they are used by motion-twin for developing all their games:
About the data production there is a nice xml2swf tool called swfmill:
Plus there is plenty of game development oriented action script
library referenced on OpenSource Flash portal:
About SVG, is the animation element
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/animate.html supported by gecko or webkit ?
looks fully supported by firefox and safari engine ?
Hope that helps.
