It seems like you answered your own question, don't use Scenes unless
they have no overlapping content. No streaming sound and no Movie Clips
that need to be available for more than one scene. Use Labels instead.
It's easy to combine Scenes into a single timeline if you make it a
point never to refer to frames by their Scene Name but only use Labels.
In a group project it is important to set up standard Label Naming
conventions to prevent problems in combining work into a single final
