Fine to me, but it also seems superfluous to some extend.

Excluding the ',' seems fine to me as well, 
it looks like a restriction introduced by implementations.
Again, the "xml strings" is superfluous to me.

I believe it is fine to slowly improve the format, 
but we should have good reasonable use cases.

I would appreciate if those developers would directly ask their questions
and participate on this list. 
Martin, can you help to convince them?
