If all you need to do is get rid of those two items, these two lines
in your main TS template ought to do it I think:

lib.parseFunc_RTE.nonTypoTagStdWrap.encapsLines.addAttributes >
lib.parseFunc_RTE.nonTypoTagStdWrap.encapsLines.innerStdWrap_all.ifEmpty = 

This is essentially what you'd done above, but without the copying
objects around; instead, you just unset (or set to an empty string)
the properties you don't want/need.

Incidentally, you're right: the configuration you describe _is_ a
little weird if you're using CSC; you said your template included:

lib.parseFunc_RTE < lib.parseFunc

...but (as I guess you've discovered), the static CSS Styled Content
template defines lib.parseFunc_RTE in the first place by copying
lib.parseFunc into it and then adding those other properties to it:

ib.parseFunc_RTE < lib.parseFunc
lib.parseFunc_RTE {
externalBlocks = table, blockquote, ol,ul
externalBlocks {

In any case, I guess the point is that you can override _single_
properties in your template and just leave the rest of the default CSC
template alone until it causes problems :^)
