The fact that people are rising concerns about the format *now* (after
it is used (and announced) over a year is for me a proof that the pure
existence of this file is widely unknown.  If the *format* would be
*really* the only issue why it is that seldomly used we should simply
discuss the format and agree to something which is really used
afterwards.  If you just enjoy format discussion and do not intend to
use the file there are better ways to spend someones time.

Kind regards
