I have similar experiences as well.  In fact, badly designed itemrenderers
cause lags even in non-Flex iOS and Android apps.  I have seen this in
numerous apps.

Is there something we can do about this in terms of coding/compiler
warnings etc. ?  Or perhaps have a Flex PMD rule for this?

At the very least, we should have documentation on our docbase that talks
about this issue.  Is that something you could help with?
