The former, indeed. End users would never need to build anything, they
just visit a (our) website they can finish or an auto-download helper
with the XML files as some kind of database inside it. gst-inspect is
(could be) run by the build/update system that developers use when
they're refreshing the extracted contents of the XML files.
