See this link [1] where I explain in details the advantage of storing
the diagram metadata in a XML Schema. Briefly:
* model 1 is database-independent so you don't need a database
connection to open and modify the diagram;
* using model 2, you can't differ if an object is part of one diagram or
another one; so you can't have two models in the same database!

IMHO an general ER Tool (I know it involves a complexity) is better than
a database-driven one.
