There's nothing inherently wrong with it other than being a little
verbose. We've rationalized that being XML, it'd be simple to write a
DTD and people could use any XML editor to edit the files. However,
our current format makes it difficult, and probably ipossible, to make
a proper DTD. We should probably fix that though.
