It sounds like you're doing something similar to what I'm doing. I just 
recently started annotating fields with the enum that they reference, 
and have plans to make even more changes. I would prefer to avoid 
duplication of effort, though.

My changes so far are at ("gitweb" web page): 

Assuming I've found your xproto.xml correctly[1], it looks like you've 
branched from an older version of xproto.xml that does not contain as 
many enums. My current plan involves modifying some of the existing 
enums to look a lot like your 'bitfield'. I think I prefer <bit 
type="CARD32" enum="Gravity"> over <bit type="CARD32 : 0=Forget, ...">, 
but I'm not terribly picky. Perhaps we can collaborate?

I welcome any comments.
