There are several superflous generated files.

First, i would propose to always put generated files into their own folder,
e.g. src-gen. This is the way all other language workbenches/generators handle it.
Also src-gen can be marked a eclipse “derived” so there is no svn problem with that
see also bug report 175

Second, I would propose to delete all the editor/generated files which contain only comments and instead include the stuff in a documentation/help system. Please see also my other bug report 171

Third, Also the constants (e.g. for Color) should be in a spoofax runtime as they never change. I think I already reported something like that some time ago but I am not sure…

Fourth: The only one files who deserve to be generated are the -Folding- and the -Outliner- files.
