No! Not everyone uses Creator or whatever tool. I strongly dislike the idea of
having to depend on a specific toolset. What is productive to some can be
counter-productive to others. We need to KISS and use a human-readable format
that offers the possibility to be manually edited if desired. And for that XML
is a huge PITA IMHO. Please, please don't go down that road.
