Xpand and tagged value interpretation

I’m currently developing a Java source generator based on UML and UML Profiles. In my profile I created a tagged value with the name „type“ and metaclass „Attribute“. After applying the stereotype to an attribute I had a lot of errors during the code generation. The error message was: „Couldn’t find operation ‚getTypeName(Common::TaggedValueType)‘ for uml::Class.Occured in: EXPAND expand:: … ::Root FOR model“ for „«getTypeName(att.type)»“. I debugged the interpreter and it seems that tagged values can override default visible attributes of the element. There should realy be a warning in the Xpand documentation.
