Change default classification set?

Is it possible to "remap" an object-classification to a different classification system?

In this picture, I've done several things: I've loaded a classification-set called NS 3451, which is our classification-system. And, in the norwegian "version" of AC, the three first digits in the name of the layer reflects its number in the norwegian system. As shown, what is classified as Wall by default, according to our system is called 231-Loadbearing wall.

So, my question is: Is it some way to makee AC classify any given object by the norwegian standard, instead of the "Archicad" standard?

I have a bad feeling the only way to do this is to manually modify those Classification values for all your Tool defaults and saved Favorites, possibly for the GDL Objects in your default Library as well.
