That is exactly my thought. Updating the xsd is relatively easy, and it's just one file per
schema. Handling a new attribute or element is just a few lines of work.

If that is going to happen, it would be post 3.0, because only 9 days are remaining, right?

I can see why JSON would be attractive, but that would also be forcing plugin authors to re-do
their config file that they recently created for 3.0. Potentially we could use XSL to transform
config.xml to config.json automatically for a bridge period.

I'll start playing with an XSD and put it out for review.
