Good point, Max. But what Google does is a bit more than than just  
render HTML content into the page which is accessible to spiders. They  
are already indexing a lot of content in Flash files, even for  
information on videos. I think the approach in the Laszlo in Action is  
the default one, but a headless Flash Player goes a lot deeper.

Adobe and Google plan to re-use that approach for Ajax apps, something  
like a headless JavaScript browser digging into Ajax applications,  
loading datasets, etc.

But still, add that information to the Wiki page. It's very useful.
