I'm working on something like this as a web application, using AxKit. My
idea is to create an HTML forms interface that allows you to roundtrip data
from the UA to the server as many times as needed, to develop an instance XML
document. The initial document is not a template, just a schema (in my case,
RNG, not WXS). It's still very much a work in progress, but if it ever works I
might open source it.
BTW, I'm kind of surprised that no one has ever done this before (there
seems to be a commercial product that does it ... I lost the link), it seems
like an obvious application, better than templates too.

Once the user has specified an XML Schema, there

When the user right clicked on the root node, the
user is presented with a context menu of *only valid elements and attributes"
that could be specified at that point. So basically, the possible
elements and attributes you could add as children or properties of the current
node would be dynamically determined by the Schema that was loaded.
