These aren't exactly assumptions. I didn't poll personally, but
FlashDevelop developers had organized a poll, which was active for more
then two years now on inclusion of Flex SDK with the FlashDevelop. You can
see the results here:
As you can see, about the half of the voters would rather not include the
SDK with their favorite editor. If you read the responses, you will see
that the major problem was the size of the download.

I can actually post polls to few popular user boards / user groups - should
I, if that is really of an interest, I'll do! But being an active user of
many such boards, I can quite predict the results. There will be a lot of
users who don't need that stuff from SDK. A lot means at leas hundreds of
votes (as per forum traffic, that would be a very significant number).

On the same note, if we are going to run few polls - do you have any wishes
about the wording of the question?
