At the risk of being another person recommending an upgrade.....

The 'correct' solution for this is to create a monitoring template for your database instance targets, that doesn't include those metrics. Then you can apply the same metric to multiple targets of the same type across your enterprise. Unfortunately before Oracle's definition of a 'template' is different to every other use of the word under the sun. In previous versions if you apply a template to a target then metrics that are set in the template are updated, but metrics that are unset in the template are not changed at all on the target, Starting with when you apply a monitoring template to a target you actually can get that monitoring template in effect on the target. In prior versions you'd have to define all metrics, some with mad values, or else remove unwanted metrics from each target before you applied the template.

so I'd say go with and use the template functionality. There are other nice things in that make it a good upgrade as well by the way.
