Only "perhaps"? Since you are referencing to Wikipedia as a credible
source, let's use it again:



A proprietary format is a file format of a company, organization, or individual

- that contains data that is ordered and stored according to a
particular encoding-scheme, designed by the company or organization to
be secret, such that the decoding and interpretation of this stored
data is only easily accomplished with particular software or hardware
that the company itself has developed. The specification of the data
encoding format is not released, or underlies non-disclosure

Or a proprietary format is a file format

- whose encoding is in fact published, but is restricted (through
licences) such that only the company itself or licencees may use it.


None of that applies to XCF. Simply put, you are using words that you
don't even understand the meaning of.
