Just to update everyone subscribing to this bug: it appears work is being done on an option to disable remote results without having to remove packages. This could make it into 12.10. I'd rather they were disabled by default, but I'm pleased that the Ubuntu developers are making changes in response to our concerns, rather than just dismissing them.
