Sorry, but it's a little bit easier to save a single media file in an old
format than it is to save an interactive multi-media in an older editable
format... it's easy for FreeHand to save graphic files out in a variety of
ways, but Director and Flash tend to export their more complex formats as
only deliverable files, rather than as a series of partial older editable
file formats.

That's the background on this difference... an authoring file tends to be
more complex than a graphics file.
