Ok. Why would relying on such relationships be a "bad" thing though?
What are the benefits of introducing an <entry> tag in the <dict>
As far as a dictionary goes, one could be as "succinct" as a succession
of key value pairs:
In this case, the "meaning" of the elements is defined by their
relative ordering. How "bad" is it that the "semantic" of the elements
is not explicitly spelled out? Pros? Cons?

Ok. I'm not quiet sure what you mean by "embedding the data types"
though? Care to elaborate on this? How would an alternative version
which does not embed data types looks like?
