SNMPToolKit - DTA_Exclude

When setting up a device in snmptoolkit, there is a button to select what dta sections to include. 

The idea as i understand it, is that different sections would relate to different devices. 

The raw config doesn't store the included value though. Instead, it itemizes the sections to not use under the dta_exclude key. 

The problem comes when you later attempt to add dta sections for new types of devices. All existing devices then pick up the new dta section. This make managing snmptoolkit dta and cfg files with monitoring profiles nearly impossible. 

 Does anyone have any suggestions on managing the dta_exclude keys without manually uploading the new dta, then opening each device to deselect the new section?
