I went through reams of documentation looking for something to verify this, but couldn't. Finally, someone on a Google Group I belong to posted this quote from Colin Moock's Essential Actionscript 3.0.
"Because this class is in the same package as the other class you want to use, you don't need to add an import statement in order to use it."
"Code in a given package can refer to the classes in that package by their unqualified names... To gain access to a class in another package, we use the import directive..."
