Flash games aren't sold and can reasonably not be sold as they run in a browser (-> no copy protection basically beside domain verification)
They are normally put onto portals like kongregate and played there with the income generated through advertising or features that come from the usage of a network connection to a database.

Also keep 2 things in mind:
1. You aren't targeting flash but Flash Stage 3D (means Flash 11.1++)
2. later this year Adobe will enforce a 9% Royality model for Stage 3D content (Flash Premium) that uses both of the required cores for reasonable performance for most games that one would even want to use Stage 3D for where the whole vector capabilities are missing. These two cores are fast memory opcodes -> flash script execution speed & 3d hardware acceleration -> rendering of 3D on gpu instead of cpu

A prof. flash game developer once told me, that you can possibly make more money when selling your game on http://www.flashgamelicense.com/ instead of putting it on X of the game websites. You might wanna check that out. It's been a few years ;)

Does somebody know if the flash game generated by shiva uses systematically StageVideo or Stage3D and needs to be embedded on webpages with wmode="direct" ?

Its Stage3D and as such requires Flash 11.1 / 11.2
no special keywords etc required, as its all handled in flash itself
