thanks for the explanation - IMO such files could be distributed as
convenience binaries, outside of the release.

My question about trusting that file amounts to "how can people check
that an fla file does not contain harmful content" - that's the whole
point about source vs. binary releases. If there's a reasonable way to
validate that particular fla, and it's only optional and not required
to use Apache Flex anyway, it can probably stay in the release IMO,
but Incubator PMC members might think differently.
