FXG files from Illustrator will flatten layers if there are more than 300 objects in the FXG (There is a warning). I am forced to check the number of object in the FXG before I save, often making multiple FXG's, all under 300 object, which I then have to re-stack in PS to get my image with all of my layers. Very time consuming and seemingly an arbitrary limitation. I would love a solution.

FXG is a really, really inefficient format with a lot of problems.
Don't count on continued support for FXG.

Well, that's too bad. If that is Adobe's position, I have a larger issue I have been trying to solve for some time which is a loss-less, layered way to transfer vector files from Flash into Photoshop. Flash won't export Ai or EPS (replaced with FXG) since Flash CS5. The only vector option is FXG.

I believe the Flash team is working on that problem, since FXG did not really address the customer needs.
