I think we may have our wires crossed in terms of what we are trying to achieve here.
The Air App is simply a surrogate browser, simply a means to load our existing application SWF. There doesn't need to be any communication between Air App and SWF other than it has a place to host/show it. So having it in it's own Application Domain is perfect for what we need.
