Clone DB and use the transportables from that? Sounds weird at first, but if you are fighting too hard against RMAN, it might make sense to have another db temporarily. Depending on your space and other things like that too, of course. Apologies if I've once again lost track of what you are doing, but it seems you might need to have different backup/restore requirements for the data and the work, and the usual case includes modifying data definitions for the new work.
