Text data templates in SVG nodes

+1 vote
I am using an SVG as a node template. The SVG comprises a small table with text fields that need to be filled in. Of course I can do this with labels but it would be brilliant if I could just provide some markup for the relevent textfields so that yEd can recognize upon import, that the texts actually represent text data fields.

For example, if there was a text element "${customData1=Default Text 1}" and another "${customData2}", yEd would add node Data entries "customData1" and "customData2" with the former already assigned the default value "Default Text 1"

I tried to figure out if this is already possible, but could not find a hint.

Currently, this is not possible, labels are the only way to enter text.

I reformulated the title of this question to sound more like a feature request.
