Yes, true so far :-)

No, the cache is only present as long as your app runs...
After that it is being cleared, like TEMP files, sorry.

See above...

But you can save the loaded stacks to the users hd if you like.

But maybe NOT with the new REV player, as far as i remember, Kevin told 
that it would start
in "secureMode", which would make a lot of sense ;-)...

See the docs for "secureMode"...
