Thank you for your feedback!
If we will receive a sufficient number of requests in this direction probably we will consider this. Please note that it is not a one week project because introducing a new product comes with all the overhead associated with any product.
Right now there are available a few options to get a reduced version of the oXygen XML Author
* you can use a "Startup" plugin that can filter out different actions and components from oXygen. Basically this receives callbacks when oXygen creates actions, menus, toolbars, views, etc. and you can decide what is created and what is not created.
* you can use the Author Component that we made available. This provides the Author editing mode as a Java component together with a couple of side views and this can be integrated in an application. The licenses for Author Component cost half the price for the oXygen XML Author product.
