SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.6 CSV Feature

I downloaded the update to SAP Design Studio this morning.  See the SAP Help here: http://help.sap.com/boad

Now it has “Add CSV as a Data Source” feature:

But trying it against any CSV file will not work.  See below:

The data will not load from the CSV as I used a CSV file without a metadata repository file.

So I locate a CSV file with the metadata repository and see below:

The aggregates are returned.  I have to go to Edit > Initial View to add the characteristics/dimensions

The CSV feature is helpful for initial design and prototyping

Here is how the metadata repository file looks:
