My toy GEGL which evolved into a video compositing end editing
application also had a by product of a versatile proof of concept XML
based project description [1]. Disregarding the temporal aspects of
it, it is a structure that allows for layer groups, effect layers and
cloned layers.

I attempted to condense it down somewhat and remove some of the
mistakes in the initial implementation and tentativly called that XML
structure XCF2[2].

One of the things that would remain for making this kind of format a
standard is deciding upon baseline features to be implemented, and a
baseline set of operations that need to be supported PNG, SVG, JPG,
ICC and EXR might seem like some of the binary formats that are
referenced by the catalog.
