Why the GreenHopper XML tags in non-GreenHopper project issues?

We use GreenHopper and are upgrading both our JIRA (from 4.0 to 5.1) and our GreenHopper. I m currently running tests on a test environment and we have noticed the following:

If I open an issue for a project that is not agile (i.e. a proper JIRA project) and view it in XML, it contains GreenHopper XML tags. Why is that and can they or even should they be removed? What is their purpose?

These tags do not exist in our current production JIRA 4.0. so they seem to be an addition in the newer JIRA/GreenHopper versions.

FYI, we use the XML format of an issue to process it in a deployment system and connect it to a software delivery (our deployment system is a system from which we deliver our software products).
