Hi, while looking through classlib sources from mcs-0.16.tar.gz, I saw that 
some directories do have doc directory containing a .xml file that seems to 
contains all the skeleton information for an assemblie (methods name, 
arguments names and types,
properties, events, etc).

The question that come to my mind was from where this .xml come from?
More precisely in what direction things are going, that is, are these files 
generated from Mono sources, or are they generated from Microsoft
sources (part of Microsoft documentation)?

If they come from Microsoft, can we, or have we, generate skeletons sources 
for classlib from these files? If not, would it be still usefull to be able 
generate skeletons fromsuch doc xml files? And maybe test if current sources 
respect these "interfaces".

By the way, can ECMA standard .xml files be included or use to generate our 
documentation,or is there license problems to doing so?
