Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive a notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org for resolution.

Add an option to the xmi importer to force creation of BaseProfile and UML Primitive Types
When importing an XMI file that represents a profile which does not contain a stereotype that makes use of the possibilities offered by the "ProfileBase" profile, "ProfileBase" isn't added to the list of its applies profiles.
Similarly, when importing an XMI file that represents a profile in which no use is made of UML Primitive Types, the UML Primitive Types package import relationship is not created for the imported profile.
The references to both UML Primitive Types and ProfileBase are systematically created on newly created profiles, and their absence on imported profiles forces the user to create them manually every time he needs to make use of the possibilities they imply.
It would therefore be a very useful addition to the product to add, in theXMI importer, an option to force the generation of such references on imported profiles.
