Cross Domain and the Proxy method

Here the documentation from Macromedia Livedocs on Cross Domain Data Loading, Moock has done a good explanation about the same. But there are times when an unusual implementation can help you in a good way. Aral has a good example of using server side script to act as a proxy between Flash and server side script to get around the sandbox security limitation (which stops Flash from directly accessing data on other domains.)

  1. That is pretty simple.
    I think that after the bug in FlashPlayer6 Macromedia has turned the "security sandbox" into a "security matchbox".
    Do you think that regarding server data security it is better to use a proxy script than to use the policy file?
    I ask this thinking at the situations when you have flash ads on your server and you _have_ to specify "*" for the allowed domains in the "crossdomain.xml"
