I think building a tool to translate between all the open DAWs, and as 
many of the proprietary ones as we can, would be more productive than 
trying to establish an XML-based lingua franca that everyone has to 
adhere to.  It may work for an office document that there's 
essentially only one correct way to render, but audio is way, way 

Not that I'm volunteering right now, since my audio recording needs 
are basic enough that Audacity is overkill.  But I have already 
written a few scripts to do things I needed with Rosegarden files 
that Rosegarden couldn't do (but probably can nowadays), so maybe 
eventually I will.
