Sadly, I am going to warn everyone from getting too excited.  While the FDA is showing favor towards Ecigs, states and localities are getting worse.  It's a positive step but if the states and local governments step in, as they have in SF and Oakland, and over regulate in manners such as restricting flavors, than the FDA's rulings will be irrelevant in many areas.

Unfortunately, since the states/counties/cities have the legal right to create such laws - about the only option we have is to work as hard as we can to get such bastards voted out of office.

As most of the voters are not smokers/vapers, the chances of being successful is going to be rather low. Most people just do not care - or they are opposed due to all the lies being told by the anti-vaping organizations.

Correct VF.  Although, my experience has me believing that at this point we need to make and work with friends in both major parties.  Frankly, neither party really cares for us as we disrupt the "natural order of things" between Big Pharma, Big Tobacco, Big NGO Health agencies., and governments at all levels, but still, we seem to have made a little progress here on both sides on occasion.

Fair enough Fahk, but I seriously recommend that everyone begin stock piling; with the flavor bans beginning out here on a municipality basis, I doubt that within a few years, most of us won't have easy and legal access to flavor liquids other than tobacco flavors.

Regular food flavorings can be used for vaping. I wonder if those will be banned, at the local level, as well?

I doubt they would be banned but you would be back to strict DIY liquids and I tend to be cautious about that as people screw things up and hurt themselves, something I don't think the government agencies either realize or care about.
