ROTFL. You've made my day. One would think that only clueless bureaucrats 
think that way ;)

In order to remove content, you have to remove it, as in physically 
overwriting the bits of image bitmaps in the .pdf, and clipping, splitting 
and then removing the "hidden" paths. There's no other way. There could be 
probably some postscript magic done to implement that, if noone did so yet.

I don't see how anyone would have the crazy idea that adding content will 
somehow remove it :) It's a trivial matter to print the .pdf to a postscript 
file, and remove the obliterations by hand.

Cheers, Kuba
