I've just started playing the Ecore Tools component of EMFT and it could
be used directly to create a class diagram for UML.ecore itself. It
should be possible to create diagrams/views of subsets of different
aspects of the model (just as for the huge XSD model I have many
different Rose diagrams). I'm hoping to have enough time this release
to begin replacing EMF's use of Rose diagrams in favor of Ecore Tools'
diagrams since obviously Rose is not a proper open source dependency
because it represents a barrier to entry...
I think it would also be interesting and nice to have UML2 Tools
diagrams for the *.uml models...
