If we can't put 15mil between the differential pair traces and these GND traces, I would remove these GND traces as well.  If we have to remove the GND traces between differential pairs and other circuitry, this will at least have the happy effect of providing 15mil spacing between the differential pair and that other circuitry.

Isn't there a option to create barriers or free form where the
floodfill may not come, white spaces so to speak. Seems to me there
should be. You should be able to create "white" spots on the GND
planes for various reasons.
