Agreed on all points. And is a good start from everything that's been 
discussed lately.

On thing on about using XML for the profiles, I've begun to not like it 
myself which why I've stopped using it for my own purposes short of 
doing updates for the profiles and making sure everything works as it 
should within the profiles. But an idea to consider for a potential new 
format might be something similar to gentoo's ebuilds, which in most 
ways are just shell functions in a text file.
