[oXygen-user] create XML document from xsd - choose target namespace?

Dear Linus,

The namespace we present in the textfield is for informative purpose 
only (and right now it is taken from the first element presented in the 
But in the elements combo itself we put all globally defined elements 
(which thus can be root elements) alphabetically ordered.

For example I added to the schema fragment you provided an element 
 <xs:element name="el"/>
and the added element appeared in the combo when I tried to create a new 
XML file from it.

Do you think it would be a good idea to have a combo of namespaces and 
choosing a namespace to fill the elements combo with the elements only 
for that namespace?
