If you don't mind using categories, then another simple way to remove the 
original light from the instanced group is to set its "categories" parameter 
to an empty string (or something that won't get used in the scene), and add a 
"categories" property to the Instance Object with the category name you want 
to use.
Oh, and yeah, the orientation of the light will be relative to -N, not +N -- 
it's been like that forever I'm afraid :P
