There isn't a way around this that I've seen, so it sounds like a good candidate for an Enhancement Request, but don't be too hopeful to see this facility before 2015 unless it's already planned.
I typically work to 'bid the way I mean to award' so breaking out items may confuse your suppliers on your award strategy, but that can be overcome in your pre-event training session.
I'm lucky in my lots are typically made up of less than ten items, so where the bid decrement is important to me, I would create items within a section rather than
items within a lot, so I have visibility but more control.

Thank you for the tip of making an engineering request. May I will make a use of it.
Making a section instead of making a lot results in that each line can go to different supplier. And I create a lot whenever I want to avoid such situation.
