Oh yes there is. Simplicity is the silver bulllet. Simplicity always supports
a text editor interface.

W3C XML Schemas needs pretty GUI tools in order
to manage a complexity that is man made - not ab initio.

McGrath's Conspiracy theory of technology complexity:
         "Any software technology that positively, absolutely needs a GUI is
         probably more complicated than is strictly necessary."
