That's true... because such clips can be called at any time, they need to
be available when the movie starts.

(Any attachable clips need to have their linkage set to "export", and are
included in the SWF regardless of whether they appear in the timeline. Such
assets are loaded at the front of the file so they're available at any

I'm not sure of the best way to approach that particular project, but what
you're describing is definitely the case, true.
