Looks very cool to me, Robert! It'd be easy to translate your 
<class-model> structure into JiBX binding terms, too.

I've thought about the issue of sample instances you mention on the 
page, but don't have any good answers. It'd be easy to do something for 
simple bean/struct classes - but that breaks down when you get to 
complex structures (think hashmaps, for instance). Allowing serialized 
instances to be loaded is the only thing I can think of that will work 
over a wide range of objects. Or perhaps unmarshalling an XML document 
to create instances? That way people could generate an initial XML and 
start editing it, then have the changes reflected in the object state.
