Question (and suggestion?) for W3C XML Schema authoring tools.

Knowing [xml] that
"Algorithms exist which allow many but not all non-deterministic content 
models to be reduced automatically to equivalent deterministic models; 
see Brüggemann-Klein 1991 [Brüggemann-Klein]."

Are you aware of W3C XML Schema authoring tools which would use (or plan 
to use) one of these algorithms to propose deterministic alternatives 
-strictly equivalent or only approaching- when a schema author creates a 
non-deterministic content model?

IMHO, such a feature would be very helpful.

Thanks

Eric
