I missed xml.ah before. So you're not only reinventing your own format,
but also your own XML parser?

This will work on the XML you emit. So you're not really working with
XML. You're working with "the specific format that your exporter has
generated", which happens to be a subset of XML.

This will break when you try to use other tools to process your XML

(I also use this option as a last resort elsewhere. But there the XML
was forced on me and I did my best not to use it, because it only made
life more complicated. Using it from start with this known limitation is
again not the best design in the world.)
