Yes, the XMI representation of the code generation sucks. Its far too
wordy than it need be. The implementation is "programmer efficient" rather
than "application efficient". I can think of 2 possible things to help
reduce the code generation verbiage:

One possible solution here is to replace some of the XMI code generations
elements which are repetative with ID/IDREF mechanism. An example of
a repeated element would be "codeaccessor" which occurs both under the
"codeclassfield" and "textblock" elements, but is fundementally no different.

Another angle to cutting down the size here is to NOT print out unmodified
codeblocks. At the very least, unmodifed codeblocks can be more concisely
represented than they currently are.
