I think it's a handy feature, but it could use some improvement, maybe.

That's true. It's still useful for encoders though as a quick reference.
Otherwise, you have to click through model classes, which is an obstacle
if you don't know the internal anatomy of the TEI.
Perhaps the allowable parents could be integrated into the display of
the element's class?
i.e. each class would have its own "Parents" list (of the parent
elements whose content model includes that class). Is that feasible?
