Normal behavior, AFAIK. Transparency in FL is an animation property. Retaining transparency only applies to nested symbols...
could you expand on your explanation?
adobe illustrator has transparency, so why is it not transferable?
why are the colour values so very different? note the text has shown through but...

I group my art and made it a symbol in AI and then drag it to the Flash stage as you can see i tis now a symbol and all is the same same color same font same art and it is clearly a symbol in Flash.
Just do what I did and al will be fine. By the the options in AI is to make it a graphic symbol or movie symbol if bring it into Flash you might want to choose Movie, well slight difference in color but might have to do with my color settings.
