Making a single timeline version of the movie may not be all that
difficult if you convert your MCs behaviors to Graphic and allow enogh
empty frames following each MC to play out on the main timeline.

Not uncommon.
There is an alternate solution that may work, but even then your
animation needs to be straight line.

I haven't had time to try this but Bryan Rieger has used the following
technique to prevent reworking MCs:
We exported from Flash 4 as a QuickTime file (v4). In QT with movie
paused at the start - and then opened the Flash file in QuickTime 4.
>From their we exported the movie as an image sequence. This trick was
not to play the movie before exporting it. As soon as you play it the
movie clips in Flash won't reset themselves until you close the file and
then reopen it. Exporting the frames right after you open the paused
movie will cause QuickTime to export the animation contained within the
movie clips - not just the first frame.

Coming Soon Flash 4 Web Animation F/X and Design
