There are many possible uses for streaming, e.g.:
* "movies" - this is probably the biggest area for Flash right now. Could be
animated instructions, feature walk-throughs, intros and much more.
Streaming makes it possible to have a >100kb movie that still plays without
a long waiting time. I think this is the most important case.
* applications - load the initial user interface first, load in
functionality later
* level-of-detail images - such as maps.
