May I know why you think it's "very unattractive"?

The storage was chosen, among other things, because KDE already uses
XBEL for storing its shortcuts.

Considering that the old recent-files spec was implemented only in GNOME
because KDE went their own way, this does not surprise me - albeit I
feel puzzled especially after the fact that the suggestion of using XBEL
came from KDE developers.  It's not like there's some insurmountable
technical reason for KDE not to consider using the same format GTK+
