As in the text editor, it should have drop-down lists to suggest values for attributes and nested tables, according to the schema definitions (enumerations, data types, ...)
It would be great also to have "live" validation, by highlighting wrong values. The editor should prevent (or at least alert when) pasting elements at an incorrect place too.
Finally, copy/paste a cell value (and not an entire row at once) would be useful to modify massively only a few attributes.
