This sounds good.

Currently the options shown to the user when exporting the schema do not
change based on the export format. Some of these options are only related
to specific export types. It would be better to show only the relevant
options and this can be easily achieved with plugin architecture. Please
have a look at the data export plugins to see how this is done for data

Thanks and Regards,
