How to change the class of a page list, so that APPEND works with correct class

We would like to avoid maintenance of enormous datatransforms to deliver mapping between Integration- and Work- datamodels which are almost identical in our application.

For this purpose we are trying to leverage the capability of Pega to change class of a page:
https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v721/procomhelpmain.htm#howto/howto2/howtochangepageclass.htm
We also change the class of the elements in a page list and it works perfectly fine. However, when we then do the <APPEND> of this page list later in the process the previous class value reappears in new elements.

It seems that the old class is hidden somewhere inside the page-list definition despite the pxObjClass in existing elements is updated correctly.

1) Do you know, how to update that hidden class which reappears in new elements?
2) What do you think, does it worth raising an SR for this functionality to be revisited by engineering, will Pega fix it?

Trick like this (after step 8) solves the problem, where as it looks like it does not change anything. It is not nicely looking and it is needed for each page-list, please, if you have ideas, share better tricks, more generic tricks which we could apply once for entire top-level page to reinitialize the page-lists:
