Default Created 100% bg movie - how best to load main content (nested mc or .swf)?

I'm definitely a newbie so this may be a dumb question...

I created a movie that contains AS to create a tile fill that fills the entire screen. This tiled BG movie is set to orient to the left top (LT) and needs to be for the AS to work.

I now want to load and center my main movie content. The movie is somewhat complex and has a bunch of references to "_root". Should I load this movie as a .swf using the "LoadMovie" directive or should I re-create the entire thing as a MC which I will bring to the stage via AS? If I create it as an MC, I will need to change the "_root" references but I would like to manipulate the main content movie as a whole and can't think of any other way. For instance - I'd like to move it around, scale it - apply alpha effects. Is my best bet to create a nested MC?
