Were OVC to devote precious resources to designing and implementing a
proprietary data format, it would add ZERO security over using XML. This is
a non-issue and a waste of time.

I appreciate your zeal, JamBoi, but you simply must understand that there
will be no benefit to using a different data format. Any perceived security
risks you're concerned can still be raised -- with any format you conceive.
