Github user alasdairhodge commented on the pull request:
    Well I strongly disagree that a single (ubiquitous and standards-defined) format makes
things "harder to work with" — just the opposite, actually! ISO's ubiquity easily makes
up for it's wrinkles.
    I my view, our primary focus should be on an unambiguous, interoperable representation
with "friendly" aesthetics a secondary concern. If things like field delimiters are a big
issue for users (really?!) then arguably we should simply defer to the locale to do the parsing
according to the user's whims (although this will open a huge can of worms when blueprints
are shared).
