Based on your clarifications in FLEX-53, I think it's fine to go ahead
and implement a mechanism to download playerglobal.swc and/or
airglobal.swc, with a suitable warning that points people to FLEX-53
for example. Or just instruct users to download those files

Even if the Flex team finds a better way later that avoids requiring
those files, I think considering them as build tools that people have
to download separately is fine for now.

Your original post also mentions mixing up Apache Flex code with other
files for FlashBuilder, it might be best to discuss this as a separate
issue, for clarity.
