Easier to read or easier to implement the display component? So what if 
the displaying component is easier to implement if you make it harder 
for user to create a sitemap without it.

If we were creating a commercial product with GUIs all over the place I 
would agree: it is better to create easily parsable format and provide a 
gui for it. But not in this case. We do not have a GUI and won't have 
for a long time.

One of my project contains about 35 entities right now. After it started 
growing I resigned from mapping my entities manually in XML and started 
to use XML. I have no nightmares anymore :)
