Feature Request: dotTrace namespace in XML export files

The XML export feature of dotTrace 3.1 is very usefull, but it would much nicer if the data was wrapped into a JetBrains specific tag such as

<JetBrains-dotTrace>
     <PlainView>
          ... snipped ...

     </PlainView>
</JetBrains-dotTrace>

rather than


<PlainView>
     ... snipped ...

</PlainView>

That way, it would be safer that the XML output does not end-up in naming conflicts when merged with other XML files (frequent build operation). Optionnally the format version could be specified too.

Then, the PlainView XML export comes as

<PlainView>
  <PlainView Name="..." ... />
    <PlainView Name="..." ... />
      ... snipped ...

</PlainView>

It would be nicer if the first wrapping tag was not having the name than the inner tags (because here there is no recursion). This would simplify the design of XSLT that handles the output of dotTrace.
