Each approach has different benefits and drawbacks. You might have to use multiple approaches in a generalized function depending on initial state and desired outcome.

For example, what do you do when a parent, or more critically a segment, doesn't exist? By default new segments will be created at the end of the message. What do you do when existing segments are repeating? Are the repeating segments consecutive? What do you do when existing fields are repeating?

If you have a very strict outcome in mind, you may want to build a new message (using the outbound template) from pieces of the inbound message rather than trying to delete everything you don't need.
