IFC: Purge Objects

Hi all,

Is there an easy way to purge specific objects and/or layers (are they layers natively?) and their related objects within an IFC file? I am hotlinking an IFC model from Revit into one project and there are sometimes unimportant geometry that are blowing out the polycount and file size...

Or what might be easier, is there some easy way to export a model excluding said objects and/or layers? Much like excluding object types when export a skp from ArchiCAD.
