Hide extra faces created in sheet metal parts in drawings

When you create a bend in a sheet metal part, Solidworks creates extra faces on the end that don't seem necessary.

 

e.g. If I'd modeled the geometry in this image without the sheet metal tool, the 3 faces highlighted would be a single face.

How do you hide the two extra edges (indicted) on a drawing, while still keeping the true tangent edges?
