I am not sure what you mean by blocking I/O since we deal with single threaded FP environment, but anyways that flag is used when you want to delay loading and do it programatically with the load() methods of the swfLoader instance

and I am pretty sure that flag does not change that fact
All I/O is asynch and non-blocking.
