Default Stretching Strings Crazy Idea !

I started the thread "Pulling/Stretching Out New........" and just thought this a few minutes ago !:
Could we successfully stretch new strings one by one before mounting them ?
You know; grab each end and stretch em out in the air...
I don't know if this would tend to pop them any more than when they're installed..I'm also thinking, if stretching does distort the intonation while on the instrument, maybe 'air-stretching' would not..And we're getting the whole length, not just the area between the barrel winding and bridge knot..Another approach would be to tie it on the winder then stretch it before tying it to the bridge.
What do you think ? M
