I heard that HTML 5 is out or will be shortly. One of the key design HTML 5 features was to allow swf files to be played without the need of a "Flash" player" especially on "Mobility Devices".
I think you are confused ! HTML5 is not supposed to allow to play Flash content without Flash ! HTML5 includes somes capabilities to do similar stuffs than Flash, but it's less powerful for now. HTML5 is still a draft for now, so more changes are yet possible
