On first look (haven't looked at it deeply).... it seems structured, relating 
each bit of data to another, which is good, but it does abstract away from 
the data being represented somewhat; it's rather harder for a human to read 
the file than say GPX. My own preferences are for an "XHTML for maps" type 
format; easily readable by humans as well as machines. Extended GPX seems to 
approximate that best at the moment. What do others think?
