Exclude file level dmdSec from publishing
We use the out of the box Update Metadata Job fairly regularly. The first part of that job is to run a publishing configuration that outputs the XML to the server. We'd like the option to exclude the file level dmdSecs from publishing, as we have some IEs with thousands and it results in a very large XML file that is difficult to work with. We generally only need to edit the IE level dmdSec so the additional XML is unnecessary.

We figured out how to exclude the file level dmdSecs using the publishing stylesheet.
