Experimental Features works amazing! I was able to import my XML data dictionary and create a spreadsheet of it instantly.

In case it helps someone, even with where the bug mentioned above is fixed, I found it still disabled.. I found that this feature (and others) is disabled while Experimental Features are disabled. Go to Tool->Options->Advanced and check the Experimental Features checkbox. (this is also mentioned in the previous question Jim K links to above).
