Are the fields RuleID and Override protected from deletion in some way?  If I use the GP tool to remove a representation, it is no longer listed in the properties yet the corresponding fields persist in the attribute table (and I cannot delete them in ArcMap, ArcCatalog or using ET Geowizards).  Please lend some insight (for the sake of table tidiness).
