Seed Based Discovery for Exchange 2013-2016 OpsMgr Management Pack

One of the bad things about the Exchange MP it is uses a broadly scoped script based discovery (and it's a complex script, at that) that targets Windows Server.  So it runs on every server every four hours.  Kevin Holman made a little MP that does a simple registry discovery into a seed class that, via override, limits the servers the script runs on.  It's great, but I wanted one that was sealed, so it doesn't show up for overrides and nobody mucks it up.  I tried running fastseal on his XML, but it didn't work because of the way he coded the overrides.  So I just wrote my own that's sealed.  Enjoy!
