Well, as Jamey explained, it's not really possible to use XML for
that. However, I didn't use m4 a lot as I think it becomes quickly
unreadable, thus not easily maintainable, but that's just my opinion ;).
As EWMH becomes more and more popular, I hope these atoms will be
pre-defined like ICCCM, as it would mean much less code/requests. Is
there any plan for that? (I guess it's not at all a priority for now,
but well, it would be much easier)
