I don't know if that is a good idea. XCF is really the GIMP's own private format for saving images between editing sessions, it is not intended for interoperability with other applications. Or what do you folks on gimp-developer think? The last thing the world needs is more undocumented, proprietary file formats. I realize that "proprietary" has a subtly different meaning from the closed source world, but it's the same idea. It does nobody any good if the file can't be read without firing up the Gimp.
