Part-year resident emigrated

I never trust overrides in Profile, but I think I have to in this case.  Hoping somebody can provide some insight on the following situation.

Person lived and worked in Ontario, Canada for part of the year and then left.  All of their income during the year for all countries is reported on a T4.

On the info page I selected the following options:

  1. Ontario for "Province of Residency"
  2. Date of departure filled out for the date they left
  3. Yes for "Prorate non-refundable tax credits for part year resident"
  4. Yes for "Are you a non-resident"
  5. Resident for "Residency Status"

Number 1 is selected this way based on which says "For the tax year that you leave Canada, use the general income tax and benefit package for the province or territory where you resided on the date you left Canada."

Number 3 is overridden as this is the only way to get the basic personal amount to be prorated as explained here:

Number 5 is overridden from "Non-resident" as the auditor message says "Select 'Resident' to ensure accurate tax calculations for an emigrant."

As mentioned at the top I don't trust overrides.  Can anybody let me know if there is a way to do this without the overrides or if you see any errors in how this has been done?

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
