Adobe's Flash player is only available for a tiny fraction of the platforms that GNU runs on. If you happen to be running i386 systems, or x86_64 systems with nasty kludges, then sure you can use Adobe's proprietary software. Gnash keeps people from being locked-in to a platform - it can run on ARM-based PDAs, Sparc desktops, MIPS routers, and just about any other platform.
Of course, the iPhone still doesn't have the CPU power to run Flash...
