After having spent several hours implementing the above, I came to realize that 
my Flash actually never sends GET request for /crossdomain.xml anyway, instead 
it tries to get this file from a standalone server running on port 843 by

Apache module mod_socket_policy_server - An AdobeĀ® Socket Policy Server

Hope it helps someone.
