Windows event forwarding - is there a gpo to configure which events are forwarded?

I did not find any word in the vista gpo reference about how to configure which events are forwarded to the eventlog server using a gpo. Did MS skip this?
To make it more clear: I can configure which server to send to by using a gpo but not which events to send while at the client I can do that manually.

If Group Policy is not being used, configure the "Subscription type" to be "Collector Initiated". In this case Source Computers will need to be manually added to the Subscription either through the Subscription configuration or the "WECUTIL" command-line utility (which can also be scripted using PowerShell, but that's another topic).

Note: In cases where there Source Computer is generating a large volume of forwarded events (e.g. Security events from a Domain Controller), use WECUTIL on the collector to disable event rendering for the subscription. The task of pre-rendering an event on the source computer can be CPU intensive for a large number of events.
I know that page and that is not an answer to my question.

OK, again swapped accounts here...but anyway. Satyatech, that is not an answer to MY question :)
I found a solution that could be a workaround, so if others are interested, here it is:
1 Configure an event forwarding subscrition on your vista computer and call it sup1
2 copy the following file: c:\programdata\microsoft\event viewer\subscriptionfilters\sup1.xml and place it into the folder at the target computer
3 export the following regfile and import it at the target computer: HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\eventcollector\subscriptions\sup1
4 execute the following command at the client (from an elevated command prompt):wecutil rs sup1

I will squeeze these commands and files and regkeys into an msi and distribute it - no problem.

I will keep this question open in case anyone could tell if MS has a GPO for it.
