It's not proprietary, in the sense that the information needed to read/write it
is publically available, however it's an internal GIMP format, and in the past
people have been asked not to support reading XCFs, since the format might
change radically, and without notice, if the needs of the GIMP dictated it
(they didn't always agree though - ImageMagick can read XCFs).
