Please let me correct myself:

I see now that flashplugin-installer gets the plugin from the
adobe-flashplugin source at
<>, and is
updated when adobe-flashplugin is updated.

So I'm a little confused. Enabling Canonical Partner, if the user
requests installation of third-party software, and installing the
adobe-flashplugin package still appears to open for a smoother work
flow, and would probably make it possible to drop flashplugin-installer.
