Hi, please note that Enterprise Architect creates very bad XMI files:

- AssociationEndRoles shouldn't have "type" and "isOrdered", I think.
- TaggedValues come directly after an element, even though there should be the slot name in-between.
- Constraint elements should be used as associations, not compositions. 
- The same "xmi.id" value is used multiple times for different elements. (!)
- Diagrams are serialized in some weird way, probably just their own invention.

In general XMI compliance between tools is nonexisting.
