Actually the current XCF format has its limitations and we are not really convinced that it is a really good (tm) format, it has some pretty severe limitations. There were plans to work on a next-generation XCF resolving these issues. I too see the need for a widely accepted exchange format for multilayered images with a lot of additional information, but the current XCF format does not meet the "good enough" criteria. The main documentation for XCF is in the source unfortunately, and for the reasons above we don't encourage support for XCF.
