What happen to XML Code completion in Maia?

Code completion for XML attribute values used to suggest string variants of fields already contained in the file. For some of us this was very useful. Now it is suggesting class names, i.e. all the class names which match the input prior to cursor. I failed to see the big benefit of this new behavior. I would rather have it as a secondary code completion level, like "SmartType completion" or something, instead of completely overruling the original behavior.

Yes, there were some changes in that area, and there may be some more
based on your feedback. What do you mean by 'fields' BTW?

By fields I actually meant attribute values. If the XML file contained an element like <element attribute="VALUE"/>, the string "VALUE" was available in code completion of any other attribute value in the file. My use case may be not very popular but i kind of miss this behavior.

Have created http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-50044 quite a while ago. Saw that it went from <IDEA: Development> to <IntelliJ IDEA>. Do you still plan to fix this?
