I wouldn't duplicate the info at [2], rather point to [1] as
additional info about binaries.

I also don't think the info at [1] is sufficient, it should include
the notion that the binaries (IIUC) are not checked by the installer,
and users installing at their own risk.

I have created FLEX-33210 for now, affecting this release for now.
Personally I'm don't think it's good to let the installer out without
this warning - IIUC the use case is that people will see the installer
badge somewhere, click on it and probably not read [1], so IMO a
warning inside the installer is required if you want to be serious
about this.

What do others think?

Agreed.
