Updating treebanks: previously rejected items and items with "remaining ambiguity, was unresolved in gold"?

Is there a way to update tsdb profiles in FFTB such that rejection decisions are somehow respected/carried over? As it is, everything that I reject will always appear as “remaining ambiguity, was unresolved in gold”.

There is no automatic way to do this. Perhaps there should be. The assumption is that when you are updating a treebank you have likely improved the grammar, which may have brought sentences with no prior good analyses into coverage. Certainly there will also be use cases where the grammarian knows that coverage has not been extended.
