Do you need to recompile Flex apps when you change messaging-config.xml?

Apparently Flex apps contain an “embedded” portion of BlazeDS config files that they are compiled against. This means that a recompile is necessary whenever you choose to change BlazeDS config files like messaging-config.xml etc. If this is the case, what is the point of separating confi information externally if it is compiled into the application anyway?

Direct quote from Adobe:

“The destination and channel information is available to the client as a result of compile-time access to the XML configuration, which the server uses to manage services at runtime and the compiler uses to embed a portion of the configuration into the client.”
