      Description

      Steps to reproduce:
      1.Create simple flex application with with no components or just only mx:Button (any component) using Flex Builder or command line options

      Actual Results:
      Minimal file size of SWF created comes to around 273KB, which includes the Flex framework code enveloped together with simple application code.

      Expected Results:
      Flex framework code should not be enveloped together in the SWF created for the application.

      Workaround (if any):
      Provide flex framework as a plugin/addon to be integrated to flash player on browser.
      This reduces redundancy in the bandwidth usage at large on a user session basis there by reducing the initial load time for a flex application.

      Silverlight is at advantage on this respect.
