Admin can currently define some text content to help the user when editing metadata. This text is displayed as a tooltip when cursor is passing above title of a class or attribute.

I would suggest to improve and ease the task of editors by adding, beside "text" and "locale" stereotype, a list of suggestions definable by the admin in the backend.

Similar help is proposed in Geosource here (Suggestion simple) : http://www.geosource.fr/docs/editor/new_metadata/index.html#suggestion-simple

PS : note that this suggestion mechanizm is different from stereotype "list", "textchoice" or "localechoice" where editors can only choose among a list, whith no change of content possible.

This would dramatically help editors and favorize more homogenous contents.

Any comment/proposal on this issue will be appreciated.

Render types "textBox" and "textarea" should be also concerned by this suggestion mechanism.
