You should not edit Winxsx with a package. the OS does that.
From the development team themselvees.

thanks for the reply sbequette!

anyway, I just want to ask if the files under winsxs folder are safe to remove from the package whenever the repackager captured it.

That folder should be in your packaging tool's exclusion list. IIRC, Wise and InstallShield have it in theirs by default.
