My understanding of the problem is that the reference doc for elements 
you include in your ODD without modification will include the same 
examples as they do in P5. This is confusing if, say,  you have removed 
some of the elements contained by those examples.

I don't think there's any way round this, other than to provide your own 
customized examples in your ODD. As I suggested to Perry last week this 
is probably good practice anyway.
