Yes.  Non-radical Plan:

1. Move existing stuff to POI
2. Ditch Gnumeric/etc
3. create an XMLBeans based fontend.

Yes. Radical plan:

1. Move existing stuff to POI
2. Ditch Gnumeric/etc.
3. Ditch org.apache.poi.**.usermodel for XMLBeans based front-end
4. Then we have XML, a good cursor based front end, an object model, etc.

Challenge: XMLBeans needs pluggable backends

Yes. Conservative but tedious plan:
1. Move stuff to POI
2. Ditch gnumeric stuff
3. Adopt Microsoft's everchanging crappy office XML stuff
4. write a bridge to the frontend based on that which will forever break and
be a pain to keep up to date like the current serializer
