No, this is impossible.

Which editor? These things should be fully qualified names of classes,
but a root extends class must be a class like EObjectImpl without any
explicitly modeled features.

No, if you want modeled features they must be explicitly known in the
Ecore model itself and hence must be explicit in the Xcore model.

It's the only way.
