Ah, that of course makes your rationale clear.

However, a visual database designer that doesn't make it
painfully clear which objects one is operating on is IMO
broken in the first place. And, frankly, I don't care one wit
about broken visual schema design software. By definition such
software would operate under the suspicion of creating faulty
schema output.
