I agree, I think the documentation is very hazy about the relationship of FMS with some of these APIs.
I've found that most netStatus event fire fine. What are you refering to when you say that?
I guess I'm not positive that it's the same with AS3, but with AS2 there were a lot of additional status events that were added to FMS which were not available with a progressively loaded FLV. The Flash Authoring docs listed only the ones available with progressive FLV, while the FMS docs listed the rest, but in AS3 all those events are listed together in the Flash Authoring AS3 documentation ("for convenience" I think it states at one point):
The AS3 docs mashes them all in one list without any distinction (that I can see), but I've added bold to the only ones that work with a progressive download, at least in AS2. I'd love to hear if you find any of the others work in AS3.
Also note there are a few new ones added in the livedocs for the Flash 9 Update 3 player.
