  Sounds like a great idea!  If I can give my $0.02, I think it could
even be generalized by providing an XQuery sandbox along with a few
variables, functions or collections:

      // xs:complexType/@name/data(.)

      // xsl:template/@name[resolve-QName(., ..)[
           namespace-uri-from-QName(.) eq 'http://my.ns' ]]
      / document-uri(.)

  Augmented with a dialog box to set up the default collection by using
a directory selection dialog box, project dropdown list and various
options, as well as a saved history, I think that would be a powerful
general purpose tool (while well integrated into oXygen yet.)

  Hope that helps.  Regards,
