Certainly. Off the top of my head:

- Introduce document classes for sequence and state diagram elements
  (UMLMessage, UMLState et al.)
- Remove the #include "umllistview.h" in umldoc.cpp, use signal(s)
- In general, check all the signals in umbrello and document their
  exact purpose and usage. (My feeling is that some signals/slots
  are misdesigned/misused or obsolete, and some required signals
  are missing)
- Look at Andy's OMF2 implementation
  -  He doesn't use Qt, just the C++ STL classes (std::string etc.)
     What shall we do? Change Umbrello or change the OMF?
  -  Get an idea of how the umbrello document classes would need to
     change in order to become compatible with the OMF interfaces
