Use SFZ. It is an open format, text based.
Also sfz is more modern and has more options.

Workflow, I don't know if there are sfz editors. But writing one should be much much easier than handling the gig format.
You should ask RytmenPinne who did the Salamander Piano and the Salamander Drums, both in sfz format.
If anything fails you can still write it by hand with a texteditor.
