Yes, that functionality is still missing.
You can use swfc, but that way you would have to specify everything
twice (once on the swfc level, and once inside the ".action:" block).
I want to introduce native embedding to as3compile, but I'm 
yet unsure as to which syntax to use.

Flex's syntax:

    class MyScene {

This syntax has the advantage of being compatible with current 
as3 software, but I don't really like it. Also, swfc has right now a
very rich selection of tags (.png, .jpeg, .sound, .font, .video, ...)
that could simply be "plugged in" in as3compile, e.g. like this:

    class MyScene {
        .png image "image.png"
        .font arial "arial.ttf"

I guess what would be required though, if we were to divert from the
Flex syntax, is a tool which could transform Flex sourcecode into
as3compile sourcecode.

I'd be happy about comments on this.
