I would like to reopen this feature request.
It gives you:
- an easier overview of all the types possible when
programming against the CodeDOM, eg it removes the need
to view the schema to see what elements are supported etc
- more importantly, it gives you strongly typed access to all
child elements. This is huge for me; it removes the possibility
of accessing the wrong type of element and thus catches
lots of exceptions at compile time rather than at design time.
- since it is strongly typed, it also enhances IntelliSense
support in Visual Studio
