OK. Should this be part of Om's InstallApacheFlex utility. If it becomes a problem for someone
on the IPMC then we can download it on demand like other components.

For AOO and POI the included .DOC files are clearly test documents that are used by the test
suites to confirm functionality. Users will need to trust that these are all suitable for
that use. It is possible for POI (not sure about AOO) that some of these files may be examples
of those that are badly formed and their purpose is to check security.

The purpose of the FLA is to show a user how to work in Flash Pro? If so, that's a bit different.
Let's see if it really becomes an issue.
