[archstudio-dev] Change of XML format

Hi Scott,

Consider the below XML tag I have extracted for a componet:

<structure_3_0:component
structure_3_0:id="component7f000001-6256bdfa-8d108ee7-0a500006"
        structure_3_0:name="First Component">
      <structure_3_0:ext xsi:type="hints_3_0:HintsExtension">
        <hints_3_0:hint
hints_3_0:hint="org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Rectangle:252,56,120,80"
            hints_3_0:name="bounds"/>
        <hints_3_0:hint
hints_3_0:hint="org.eclipse.swt.graphics.RGB:252,233,79"
hints_3_0:name="color"/>
      </structure_3_0:ext>
    </structure_3_0:component>

If I added extra attributes to that XML description, and say it looks like
the below (note the bold):

<structure_3_0:component
structure_3_0:id="component7f000001-6256bdfa-8d108ee7-0a500006"
        structure_3_0:name="First Component" *stage1="1" stage2="2"*>
      <structure_3_0:ext xsi:type="hints_3_0:HintsExtension">
        <hints_3_0:hint
hints_3_0:hint="org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Rectangle:252,56,120,80"
            hints_3_0:name="bounds"/>
        <hints_3_0:hint
hints_3_0:hint="org.eclipse.swt.graphics.RGB:252,233,79"
hints_3_0:name="color"/>
      </structure_3_0:ext>
    </structure_3_0:component>

Would that break anything in Archstudio?

Cheers - Chris
