I dont think we have implemented any feature that depends on 11.1+ flash
players.  What is the point of bumping up the requirement?  Unnecessarily
bumping up flash player version requirements will cause a lot of developers
to not upgrade their Flex SDK versions.  I have seen this first hand.

Of course, this does not prevent folks from running their Flex apps using
the latest flash players.  In enterprise world, such upgrades are done
infrequently; we need to we very careful when we bump up the flash player
version requirement.

Thanks,
Om
