I've entered it as an enhancement request.
Of course, as it stands now, you already don't have to type the "mx:".
After "<", the code hints dropdown will come up. As you type the first
few characters of the tag name WITHOUT the prefix, we'll filter the list
down to things that match, regardless of prefix. For example, by the
time you type "but", you'll probably be down to just 3 items, where
mx:Button is selected (assuming you're in an empty project just inside
the Application tag). Now that mx:Button is selected, you can hit
[enter] to insert it. So typing "<but[enter]" results in "<mx:Button "
being inserted into your page.
Hope this helps.

That's great to hear and thank you much for the extra information.
Out of habit I automatically would type "mx" immediately after my "<" character without even thinking of trying something like "<but" to bring up the codehint for mx:Button. That's great! Thanks again.
