AI and other impoted files need to be optimized inside Flash.
Flash uses a totally different drawing system than other vector formats.

File size is not the only consideration in optimizing.
Use the report to issolate where things are heavy.
Layer structure can also be a major cause of problems, causing Flash to
redraw unneccessarily.

If drawn in Flash or properlty optimized with proper structure this
should not be so sluggish.
