Children should be exposed through properties
For example, the Component element should have the
following properties:

AppIdElements

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

Short answer: it is strongly typed.

You can already access children by Type using the indexer.
Adding these elements doesn't actually give you anything
above what the indexer provides.
