Having a human-readable file format would be preferable, all else being equal, to the current binary format. Human-readable files are easier to debug, inspect, and of course modify. But someone would have to implement it.

shirish: if your goal is modifying the save file, a lot of common operations (like editing stats, experience level, and equipment) can be done via the debug commands. I'm not aware of good documentation for them, but this portion of a Let's Play has a few examples.
