Most types of Flash connection are limited to _either_ the current
domain _or_ another domain with a valid crossdomain.xml file.

crossdomain.xml would have to explicitly allow access from osm.org, or
alternatively from everywhere. http://api.flickr.com/crossdomain.xml
is a nice example of the latter.
