nice idea, maybe when I finish the current the features I could add that as
another type of view, so that the user can switch between the tree view, the
graph view, and possible text view.

It is indeed concepted as a generic XML editor, which (at the moment) should
be usable for any xml-format that only stores information in attributes
(e.g. most parts of the cocoon sitemap, ant build files, ...).
