This idea has arisen from a conversation with a colleague @Carlithian where we were trying to work out a way to remove tools from the canvas which might be redundant, for example have you added a select tool to the canvas which hasn't been configured to change a data type or rename a field. So we were looking for ways of identifying in the workflow xml for tools which didn't have a configuration applied to them.
This highlighted to me an issue with something like the data cleanse tool, which is a standard macro.
The xml view of the data cleanse configuration looks like this:
As it is a macro, the default labelling of the drop downs is specified in the xml, if you were to do something useful with it wouldn't it be much nicer if the interface tools were named properly - such as:
So when you look at the xml of the workflow it's clearer to the user what is actually specified.
