Yeah, I agree that AIR should allow whitelisting of remote domains, but I
think there is still fear of allowing "open" domains like FaceBook and

Essentially, this trick makes remote content local.  It can make remote
calls, but the headers will be the same as if you coded URLLoader in the
main AIR app not as if it was a web-app served by the domain's server.

Well, the communication mechanisms between sandboxes are things like
sockets and the shared event dispatcher.  Only flash.*.* classes are
shared across the boundary.  Flex SDK classes and your classes are not.
You can set up some fancy ways of transcoding data via those mechanisms,
but beware that the more general you make it, the more you expose yourself
to security issues.
