Hi Alex,

Have you filed a feature request for this? It sounds useful.

Hi Mario,

It is unfortunate, but Excel does a far better job of
importing/opening random XML files than LO. I download XML files from
a public administration I work with, and in Excel I can just open
them by double-clicking on them. Excel creates an on-the-fly ad-hoc
namespace for the document if it doesn't recognize the namespace of
the XML or doesn't have an import filter for it, and also preserves
the tree structure of the elements and attributes, using the elements
as filter headers. Quite simply put, this is brilliant.

LO, on the otherhand, imports everything as simple text and dumps it 
willy-nilly into the spreadsheet in the first column, losing all 
element/attribute information. If you want the same thing in LO, you 
have to design and implement a separate XSLT filter for each XML type 
that you want to open...
