Is there any documented, official way to access the native APIs on mobile devices (iOS and/or Android, specifically)? Perhaps some sort of ExternalInterface support? My most important need for this is importing 3rd party SDKs, the first one being the Facebook iOS SDK for Single Sign-On.
If not, is support for native APIs planned? Has anybody figured out an unofficial way to access the native APIs?

Nothing official is available; although there is an AIR for TV Document on building ACtionScript extensions to AIR. I expect that "approach" will show up in other AIR runtimes.
You can look at this for an "ad-hoc" way to do it: http://www.jamesward.com/2011/05/11/extending-air-for-android/
That is a crying shame. I'm finding the Flex Mobile API leaves out quite a few high profile controls itself, like VideoPlayer, so this means you can't even brew your own replacements.
Seriously. I'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to do a Share menu that will attach an image to a new message in the native email or SMS/MMS app.
