ECR for Flash Player: Allow Socket connection to HTTP servers without special setup

This is for Adobe Flash Player team, specially security guys, please allow us (developers) to use Socket API in creative ways, beyond you permit us. Atleast, for same-origin (domain), we don’t need to have special policy file to allow socket-connection over http-port (80) or ssl-port (443)? This is totally doable?
Please, please tell us why don’t you let us do it now?

Update (Jan 20, 2008): I filed an enhancement-request in Adobe JIRA bug-base. Vote for this enhancement, if you think it’s useful. You can vote by visiting the following link:
