I would like to request a tool that could be added to the Metadata Toolbar in ArcCatalog, to "Edit the raw metadata XML."  It would be useful to have the ability to make minor edits to the raw XML file such as having the ability to easily delete the geoprocessing steps once you are done capturing what information you can from them.  I'm aware the current workflow uses geoprocessing tools to remove the geoprocessing steps, it would be nice if a mini xml-editor tool could be added to the offerings.

Thank-you for your consideration of this idea.
