Think you've actually hit the nail on the head Arthur; if a good 
solution exists developers will use it.   Although it might help a bit
to get some exposure for the solution on or other
developer sites.

As for XML, with a proper API there's no reason to worry much about the 
format of the configuration data files.   The applications would never
look directly inside any config file anyway.   Some people might
want to use a central SQL server for config files, someone else
might want to use traditional /etc flat files etc..
