Drop STP SQL with dependency of other STP SQL type NATIVE

We have a general purpose StoredProcedure (STPX1) that is called by other native StoredProcedures (STPA1, STPA2, STPA3, etc) that have CALL statements to STPX1,

If I need DROP the STP STPX1 (for recreate later) I receive the error -478 for dependency whit STPA1, STPA2, etc.

DSNT408I SQLCODE = -478, ERROR: ALTER, DROP, OR REVOKE AFFECTING OBJECT TYPE

PROCEDURE CANNOT BE PROCESSED BECAUSE OBJECT STPA1 OF TYPE

PROCEDURE IS DEPENDENT ON IT

in order to delete and recreate the STP STPX1 I am obliged to unnecessary delete the some other STPs (STPA1, STPA2, STPA3, etc.)

I need do the DROP a Stored Procedure although this is called by others. In any case, it ends up with a positive sqlcode, for example +478 but the DROP ends all work.
