[OpenAjaxIDE] <require> type attribute values ...

We can't assume that it will be loaded by a JS dependency or a library.


My understanding of <require> is that it does a couple of things:


-          It lists the assets that the widget depends on.

-          It gives a hint to the IDE what references need to be
included in the <head> of the document.


Some IDEs such as Dreamweaver depend on the assets list to figure out
what files and directories need to be copied to a user's site. Now these
media files could be in a directory that is referenced by a <require>
file, but I don't think we should be assuming that *every* widgets
assets will be organized that way.

The <require> deals with incorporating the portlet's

dependencies into the canvas outside of the widget's

own "space". Wouldn't the multimedia files that you

are talking about exist as part of the widget itself, or

else be loaded by a JavaScript dependency or a library?

	The spec currently enumerates these values for the @type
attribute of the <require> tag:


	library | javascript | image | css | folder


	I think we need to either add some other types, or introduce the
notion of an "other" value to accommodate other popular file formats
such as .mov, .avi, mp3, .swf, .flv, etc?
