Although, I don't see any sane reason for that.  You can try redefining
\usepackage', the document' environment and everything else that
appears in your preambles and try something like

\phantom{\input{file1}\input{file2}\input{file3}}

(If you are more elaborate, you may construct a macro that eats up
tokens until it finds \begin{document}' and redefines \enddocument' to
stop the output of tokens by the macro.)

How does concatenating the contents'' files work, and do you not
prefer to work with them, rather than the .tex's?
