i use the "new" Eclipse Command Framework for a while now. The framework is very satisfying, but the handling in the plug-in manifest editor is really uncomfortable. My problems/points are:

1. org.eclipse.ui.handlers extensions have no labels in the extension tree. So I see always something like:

-> (handler)
-> (handler)
-> (handler)
-> (handler)
-> (handler)
-> (handler)
-> (handler)

So when I seek for a special handler, I have always to switch to the xml representation or click each handler in order to show the properties in the details view. *arg*

2. Similar behavior with and commands.
I know the possibility to define a label for a menu contribution, but I see a big advantage in defining a default label and default icon at one place (for a command) in the application and reusing the command in many places.

Do I overlook something...does anyone else have same annoying moments while using the command framework? How do you handle this?
I found nothing about this uncomfortable behavior in the newsgroups or bugzilla.
