If it's just meant to be an interoperability syntax, then it might not 
be such a bad thing. For sure writing a parser for the vanilla PList 
syntax is rather easy, but with the XML syntax you can skip that step 
and ease implementation (for something this simple the benefits are less 
clear of course). It sure is an ugly format, but computers don't know 
that much in the area of aesthetics.
