Lofting, dependencies

When I loft multiple times in my part, a dependency is created that I do not care for.  If I supress the first loft, then all subsequent lofts are auto-suppressing.  This does not seem right, since I did not use anything from the first Loft to make any future lofts.

 

For Example:

What you can see in the picture above is an example of my work.  I have only lofted the first section, and have my curves setup to loft again.  Curve3 is that which is closest to the viewer.  Curve4 and Curve5 are geometrically the same set of points (the end of Loft1 and the beginning of soon-to-be Loft2, respectively), but they were inserted independently of each other.  Curve6 is the farthest away.  If I were to create Loft2 using Curve5 and Curve6, and then supress Loft1, Loft2 would also become supressed automatically.  WHY!?  The two features are unrelated and do not share any relationships.
