If you have to parse XML anyway (which I agree can be a PITA, hence adopting
Chris & Richard's suggestions for text/json equivalents) then it's
incrementally more difficult to use an existing schema. Corners cut now will
certainly come back to bite us later, and as we flesh things out I'm sure
you will agree that Atom more than pulls its weight in this context.

The value of existing developers and client implementations is not to be
understated either.
