FW: Revit 2012 Really odd (potentially useful) door behavior at curtain walls

Revit 2012 Really odd (potentially useful) door behavior at curtain walls…
 If the curtain wall is hosted in a wall, a door can then be hosted to the main wall and effectively cut the curtain wall. Doors can also be moved into embedded walls- cutting the curtain wall.
 Once this happens-
·         If the base offset of the curtain wall family is changed the door is DELETED.
·         If the curtain wall family profile sketch is modified from the default rectangle the door is deleted.
·         If the curtain wall family sketch is RESET – the door remains.
·         If the curtain wall is deleted- the door remains
·         If the door is drug out of the curtain wall area, and the curtain wall sketch is modified or the base of the curtain wall sketch is modified, the door will be deleted.
If you substitute a wall family for a panel, the curtain wall will not subdivide if the system is modified.
