I think I would suggest that you do this statically, rather than  
letting Roma do it.  i.e. write your ODD, build your example
file, then write a processor to read the example file and update the  
ODD. That gives you a chance to edit the result.
I have queasy feelings about the chance of getting this totally  
working in generality.
