Hi Yves,

Our Java-based API should be enough for a developer to implement such a 
functionality so if you are interested in this approach I could 
elaborate. But we cannot implement something like this as a part of the 
default behavior.
Maybe when you are working to refactor somebody else's content you 
should have the XML document in the Author mode displayed as "Full Tags 
With Attributes" (there is a toolbar drop down button for this).
