[Archivesspace_Users_Group] digital object mapping to EAD in v.2.2.1

Hello all -

We have "nearline" digital objects which do not have a public URL, and 
we describe them in ArchivesSpace.
They have a Title and an Identifier, but we don't use the File Version 
field for them because there is no File URI.

This is an example of what ArchivesSpace exports as EAD for a digital 
object which has an Identifier of "ms0599aip_001" but has no "File 
version / file URI".
<dao xlink:actuate="onRequest" *xlink:href="ms0599aip_001"* 
xlink:show="new" xlink:title="Louis Albach Buffalo Bayou research 
materials" xlink:type="simple">

So it is mapping the Identifier to an xlink:href attribute, and 
therefore makes a dead link in the EAD.

Has anyone successfully edited the mapping to make this stop?  I would 
want the Identifier to simply show as "Identifier" and not try to be a link.
