Why are extension point schemas not real XSD? Maybe there are good
reasons for that, and someone could point me to some place where these
reasons are described?

I'm not that familiar with all the EMF related technologies yet, but it
seems that if extension point schemas were real XSD, it would be
possible to generate them and the extensions from EMF models. Or is this
already possible somehow?

Where I'm coming from is that I've developed a somewhat complex
extension point for defining GUIs that follow our internal best
practices and I'd like to create a GMF based editor for them at some
point. Maybe I'm thinking the wrong way and there is some other way that
should be done.

For example, maybe the GUI definitions should be plain XML and not
extension points, and the extensions would just tell which XML file
defines the GUI, or maybe they should be EMF models stored in some other
way. Or maybe I should use some existing generator to generate the
plugin.xml files?
