So, I think what is needed to make a reliable file format is to provide a well written library for reading and writing the files that's freely available and properly maintained on every modern platform FROM DAY ONE.
I agree with this -- I think it's really important.
(That's if we either want or expect the new XCF to become a defacto standard in the first place. Personally I'm not sure either way, but in any case it makes sense to library-ise the XCF load/saver just from a technical abstraction standpoint.)
