Given that Epiphany is very firmly the odd one out here, and that all of the
other browsers (including Safari) could very easily produce and consume XBEL
(and importantly, produce/consume the *same* XBEL without losing any data),
perhaps Marco should just try and munge it as best he can and let everyone
else get on with using the de facto standard. :-)
