While I agree with you on principal, it's an unrealistic expectation. 
You can't expect a small business, who paid $1000s to a developer to 
have a web application made, one that still works well BTW, to again pay 
$$ to migrate this to html5 with no perceived benefit as flash player is 
still available and supported. When it finally breaks, sure. 
Unfortunately, (un)certain inevitability is a hard sell to the brass.
