Proxy for IfcDistributionElement

Hello Everyone,

I have a question regarding IfcDistributionElement. I need a ProxyElement, that is a subclass of IfcDistributionElement and not a subclass of IfcBuiltElement.
Can I use just IfcDistributionElement for that? Without any type? Are there any alternatives?

In the Schema ( it says:

Direct instantiation of IfcDistributionElement without an assigned subtype of IfcDistributionElementType provides the meaning of a distribution element proxy.

But also in the NOTE:

The entity is marked as deprecated for instantiation - will be made ABSTRACT in future releases.

If IfcDistributionElement is made abstract, what how can I create a proxy element as subclass of it?

I would be happy about some Input.
