Well, this is your choice. I will most probably implement these also for 
Commons SQL and then there is no real need to duplicate this also in AXgen.

In my view, it is better to have different projects specializing:
* AXgen specializes in (reading in and modeling) XMI related stuff
* Commons SQL specializes in generating database related stuff.

Thus, AXgen is more XMI centric and Commons SQL is more database centric.

But, of course, both can have some overlap, if this seems more suitable 
for the people involved...
