extremely strange request...
Why do you want to change MC's properties if you are not going to put it
The best approach will be to delete this MC even from library if you are
not using it...
One - you can drag the MC onto the stage from the library, edit it, and then delete it from the stage. The library will then contain the updated clip.
Two - double click on the MC in the library window and you can edit it that way.

well, i'm creating an (Operating System)-like thing using both actionscript 2 and 3. you can test it here at : http://silentsleeper.com/SilentSleeperOS .
Like windows or mac, you can customize the window properties even if it is not on stage, this is what i plan to do. to dynamically change the properties of my window(which is a movieclip in the library, but of course like every OS, will show on the stage if someone clicks on a button or something).
I guess the best way will be to follow rlc5611's first example, but if there is a better more professional way, i'd go for it.
