Summary: CodeDOM: XXXRef elements should have a ResolveReference() me
For example, DirectoryRef.ResolveReference() would
return the referenced Directory, or null.
XsdGen gets used in a number of places, not just in WiX. The
ClickThrough project Rob, Derek and I are working on also
uses it, for example.
I'm saying that XsdGen will not be WiX specific. If you'd like
to build something on top of the CodeDom that has WiX-
specific knowledge, that seems very reasonable, but it won't
be coded straight in. Please feel free to open a separate
feature request for that.

I don't understand this.
XsdGen lives in WiX, so enhancing it to work with WiX would
be a feature, no? If XsdGen is supposed to be more general,
well, what more is it than recreating the tools that already live
in .NET Framework?
Besides, this is a feature that people that, for example,
implement editors will use, so the feature has a reason to live
inside WiX. There is a real usage scenario for this.
If you want to keep XsdGen more general, okay, but why not
using the XsdGen as a base for a more 'WiX-specific' utlity?
In short: this is a feature that has a place in WiX. (IMHO)
