My guess is that if someone were to present it as a fait accompli then it'd be accepted into the codebase, but I'd be surprised if any of our regular contributors thought it worth the effort.
Someone (Elly) once did produce something a lot closer to a plain text save file format with key=value pairs or similar. Back in 2010 or whenever it was, it made the savefiles huge and loading them noticeably slow. I rejected the patch for performance and file size reasons - it seemed like a bad tradeoff. Might be different now!
