This is not so much for updating a geodatabase from a model (the Schema Wizard is sufficient for that), but rather for updating a model from a geodatabase.4) We need the ability to define spatial references in UML.5) We need the ability to define Topology feature classes in UML (and also Network Datasets when they become available).6) We need the ability to maintain descriptive metadata in UML and be able to automatically generate/update XML metatdata with the Schema Wizard2007 PUGA stop gap solution for this would be to show the difference between a model and a geodatabase, and that would be useful. It is unlikely that ESRI will ever support full conversion between models and geodatabases.
