NIM086385 - Migration/Export should check for valid geometry for the 0 length links. Migration should also create constant attributes to handle free text parameters in static attributes, since they are not allowed in 10 and 10.1. Migration should enforce inheritance between different schematic feature classes, since this is also not allowed in 10 and 10.1.

NIM087473 - Secondary associations are lost when updating a diagram based on the Standard builder using the Refresh attributes option.

NIM089369 - Need to change our migration workflow to allow users to filter out the set of diagrams they want to migrate, disable some attribute evaluations that may be time consuming during migration process, and execute several migration operations based on different set of diagrams in parallel so they can faster migrate their entire schematic dataset content.

NIM090153 - The Update Diagram and Create Diagram GP tools only work when specifying a physical XML file as input. They should work without such an input XML file for the case the XML builder is configured to work with an external component.
