Anyone run into an issue with WebSphere WVE (WAS with the URI PMI metrics that are now being exposed by default causing metric bloat in Introscope?

We recently upgraded from WVE (WAS  I have just the default "basic" pmi metrics enabled.  It looks like maybe IBM is now exposing URI metrics (request count and response time).  The problem is...some of our service apps have URIs that don't use the query parameter (?) in their url and instead are generating a unique URL for each and every request.   I had over 100,000 metrics for one agent in one day. 

I know I can change the pmi settings in WAS to use the "custom" option and turn off the "web application" pmi metrics.  I'm guessing perhaps I can do something in the agent as well? Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue and how they dealt with it.

By the way...I have a support ticket open with IBM and creating one with CA support.
