Ok, I've committed the patch along with updates to the HTML docs on the
XML format. BTW, I think it would be useful to have a formal schema defined
for the XML format - not for sake of validation - just to unambiguously
define what we're expecting in the XML from apps. The current format.html
doc is a good overview, but its not exactly precise in detailing what we
expect / support.
