Re-Factoring: These options make advanced editing menu items visible in the repository task menu. These clearly deviate from the traditional and formal method of FCO-IM, and are added only for advanced and experienced modellers who feel the need to create otft's first and add expression later. Well-formednes rules still check the model and require verified expressions.
