I'd love to have UML exports of JS projects like OpenLayers. UML 
diagrams provide a fast way for a new developer to quickly get an 
understanding about the structure of a software package and find the 
part that they want to work on or use.

A few of us manually created a UML model for the vector graphics branch 
of OpenLayers before we wrote it. I don't think it will be of much use 
to you because it is now out of date (we didn't update it as we wrote 
the code) and it only covers the vector components of Openlayers.

However you are welcome to look at it. It is in the universal XMI 
format, created with Umbrello (available on linux).
