The rewrite of the serializer is enough of a reason, not to change the
format. (IMHO) Why change something, if it works, as long as there is
no strong reason ? (and Excel format compatibility is no strong reason
for me)

Gnumeric XML is powerful enough and well documented. The latter is the
most important for me. This pdf describing every single tag and
attribute is a huge help, when having to generate a spreadsheet
