I think the gnumeric XML format is the way to go. Why bothering with
Excel XML format if it's going to change anyway (if it's just a
translation of the binary format, it is most likely to change). And
Excel still can read and write the old binary formats.
This way you could also use other serializers to produce
spreadsheets or any other spreadsheet application.

So, my wish would be a Gnumeric XML generator and serializer. Served
with backed potatoes and some garnish ... ;)
