Merge Package with XMI

When importing a Package from XMI into the model, the existing Package and its contents will be deleted and replaced with the content imported from XMI. If you have made changes to the model Package that have not been captured in the XMI and you want to keep these changes, you can merge the content of the XMI file with the Package in the model.
