We've faced this problem with a couple of packages (not SLOX, never used 
it) that "demanded" Dit strucuture a certain way.  It is rather trivial to 
create a subordinate partition with back-meta that mirrors data from the 
'real' sections of the Dit, and to use that subordinate as the base for 
the grumpy package.  So far it has always worked.
