XMetaL Author has APIs that let you hide elements in the Element List. A simple script can be written to do this, but there may be complications from that depending on how tightly you wish to control what your authors are doing (basically, the fact that they are not listed in the Element List does not make them invalid for insertion, so that you could still paste in such content or enter it into Plain Text view). Modifying a DTD or Schema is the only real way to avoid that.
