2015.x Vivado IP Flows - DONT_TOUCH property on IP cores in non-project mode prevents physopt optimization INFO: [Physopt 32-573]

Description

When using the non-project mode, there are DONT_TOUCH properties on the Xilinx IP modules in Vivado 2015.x.

This is an issue as it prevents optimization during implementation and causes the following INFO messages:

INFO: [Physopt 32-573] ... was not replicated.
The following hierarchical instances have DONT_TOUCH attributes which can prevent cell replication:

Resolution: Removing DONT_TOUCH attributes may enable additional optimization.

Solution

In project mode, these DONT_TOUCH properties are automatically removed.

This issue in non-project mode is resolved in Vivado 2016.1 and newer versions.
