Usage Meter billing issues

In both v1 and v2 of the usage meter the reports include VM's that I believe should not be included in reporting, as they are what I would term 'infrastructure'.  Examples would be the Usage Meter VM itself (which requires 3GB vRAM), as well as the vShield Edge Appliances, which in our case use around 20GB vRAM.

It should be possible to exclude VM's from reportng.

Also there doesn't appear to be any means to determine which VM's are using vShield Edge, therefore we cannot easily report on the additional points per GB vRAM required under the VMware agreement.

Has anyone raised this with VMware, and if so what sort of feedback are you getting?
