These are good arguments: as i forgot to think about the communication 
However, the main goal of my proposal was to present the user a unified 
way to edit the profiles, without having to know all different syntaxes 
that are supported (which is at least 2: nALFS and the book-sources).
I guess i have to to think about a different way to archive this goal ;-)
