Remove the "smart" from a Smart Component?

I've inserted a freshly-defined Smart Component into an assembly, and activated the features it carried in.  Now I want to remove just the features (from the assembly, that is), but leave the component behind - as it drives a component pattern.

 

If I delete the Smart Component folder, it takes that component (and its children) with it.  Solidworks Help is not, it doesn't mention deactivating the feature itself.

 

Any ideas?

 

Feature details:

Single Component drives a Through All Cut through a single adjacent component, the only reference required is a start face for the cut.
