Hello - for documentation and build purposes, I think the system should be improved to allow certain metadata to be easily accessed. For instance, I would like to get:
* list of all tables * list of views in each table * list of all columns in a table with data types
Regarding the graphviz graphs (currently a LABS feature), those are great, but I think for bulk documentation it should be easier to get all possible graphs dumped out, so that we can save time in documenting.
Of course I understand the idea of not over-documenting, but, sometimes it is unavoidable or required. This sort of info would really help not only when going down and making settings on each table for instance (in that I want a checklist so I do not forget where I am), but also when documenting the system for a client after a go-live.

My idea is lonely and needs your promotional help! :-)

API.DescribeApp() + API.DescribeTables() ?

Yes, but please note, requesting page should reside in the same domain due to browser's security constraints. Though you can simply place it to application's resources section.
