Can you post the details of the errors? I mocked it up and while some of the designers reported no elements in sequence IsWiX did not crash and still functioned. WiX v4 is expected to have extensive language / schema changes so I'll probably want to restrict the designers to 2006/wi schema for now.

I've given this some thought and while I think you would be best served going to WiX 3.9 (soon 3.10), I'm going to go ahead and start the work on supporting 4.0. Assuming I don't hit any road blocks, I should have the work done within a week.

Resolved with latest release. Please note that per Rob Mensching, WiX v4.0 is still very beta and much is broken. I had to comment out the UIRef and Merge/MergeRef elements to get the project to templates to build. This release adds proper support for WiX v4.0 schema and WiX v4.0 itself isn't anywhere near ready yet.
