snap to object, but don't create relation

Is there a way to create sketches snapping to out of context objects AND not have the sketch NOT add a relation?

 

Say I have a large assembly. I am trying to design parts for that assembly. To do this right now, I create sketches that are created snapping to other objects in the assembly so the items will fit together.

 

But then to have the part live on it's own, to be used in other assemblies, I have to manually delete all of the sketch relations, then replace them with dimensions inside the single part.

 

Is there a way to avoid the delete step? Like snap to object, but don't create a relation?
