|Transform the objects to be compared before the comparison operation [message #1653710]

I am currently developing an EMF model edition application heavily relying on Sirius. I would like to make object comparison available to users. I have noticed that when I include the EMF Compare features in my final product, new comparison commands become available in the contextual menus available from SIrius views (Compare Each Other <EObject> in Dialog and Compare Each Other <EObject> in Editor). To be frank, I have no clue of how these commands are contributed. Plus, this Sirius/EMF Compare integration does not seem to be officially supported by Sirius developers.
My problem is that the Comparison view displays differences between the graphical representations of objects (e.g Sirius tree items, Sirius table lines, themselves being instances of EObject) whereas I would need the differences between objects from my model (the semantic model).
So I am wondering if a pre-processing extension point exists in EMF Compare, which would enable me to provide an adapter converting Sirius graphical objects to semantic objects, so that the comparison is performed between the semantic objects directly.
Sorry in advance for my question, for I am new to EMF Compare and I have not browsed the documentation in depth.
Thanks in advance for your help,
