so far, what I found as the only way to work with the MDL files was to use 
the trial license of Rose, and export the model from Rose to XMI.
I had to get a Rose plugin to do the XMI export (available from Unisys).

An alternative solution is to use the XMI version of the UML 2.0 metamodel 
available directly from OMG.  Unfortunately, the most recent version 
released was in January 2003.  There have been quite some changes in UML 
2.0 since that, but it can be still useful to get the rough picture of 
what is in the metamodel.
