In general, swfmill is version-agnostic, i.e., the <movie version="x"> attribute defines the SWF version. swfmill doesn't support AS3/AVM2 bytecodes per-se, but *mostly* the swf tags containing them should be transformed fine (as UnknownTags), especially if you dont need the "simple" dialect. There might be problems regarding Assets (images etc), and of course you'll not be able to modify the AS3 bytecode itself...
Maybe you could run some tests to see if swfmill is "finished enough" to do what you want. If not, i'm available for extension work given a little monetary incentive (although full AVM3 support is quite a bit of work).
