Flash has always had a "choke point". Yes, you can make files larger, 
but they start to deteriorate around 4.5 megs. Poor reaction, failed 
image loads, audio lags. Certain types of applications can take a bit 
more before exhibiting these issues, others a bit less. We have not 
tested this limit in MX, because or Flash5 workflow process just 
continues into MX. Our current projects are designed to accommodate  
these issues. The typical work-around for the issue is to break a single 
project into a number of linked movie clips.
