Export AF tree branch with Element references as Elements?

Difficult to formulate the subject of this thread, but I'll explain further:

 

One of my customers have a corporate AF structure which has one tree branch in particular, which is now going to be brought into its own AF database. The problem is that this tree branch includes lots of element references into other parts of the corporate tree, and I would like to export these as elements (i.e. not element references).

 

Is there a smart way to accomplish this?

 

My semi-manual backup plan here is to use Excel and PI Builder to export the tree, and then copy the element references into another worksheet, before exporting the elements. Then I'll have one worksheet with my exported tree branch, and one with the source elements and attributes. Then I'll have to compile the two sheets into one, by replacing the element references with the elements themselves.
