Is the only difference between energy cards and flash energy is the flash energy cannot be used for movement, but a regular energy card can?

Do we know if there are any plans to "backport" flash energy to the original spellbooks ? One of the overpowering things in the original game for me has been using energy to boost movement, so this semi-fix would be good if it applied to all existing spellbooks, and not just the three new ones.

The 'Optional Rule' in Malefic curses rules adendum is that you can 'switch out' (if all players agree) certain energy cards from spell books and replace them with flash energy.

 

I liked Flash energy for the reasons above.  We had far less speedy gonzales play (lots of games are won by the fast player who cant be caught) and I found the flash enegy made us 'Deal with' one another in our games more.

 

Actually on the whole im rather impressed with the whole expansion.
