I guess you mean "do not write the boundary conditioned dofs" to
locations, I could not understand why you mentioned right hand side
vector... I am not solving a static problem that I should also condition
the right hand side, if this is what you thought of :)

Actually, I was wondering how to do that with the built-in facilities
like in a MATLAB sense, however I searched in the documentation and
mailing list for two days and could not come up with a sensible solution
by the built-in functions, so your approach seems to be the best way.
