The way that the WiX tool 'burn' works, it creates its own installation ID, in addition to the ones found in the MSI's under its control. I see two ways of eliminating this behavior:
-- Stop using 'burn' (already been under discussion).
-- Disable the individual MSI's from presenting an uninstall option on the context menu. I'm not sure that's possible.
