Dear Jonathon,

I cannot find the pages that you added.  Could you include a link?

I am not in favor of posting file format details on the wiki.  We do not 
encourage people to write software directly to our data formats, as they 
are not guaranteed to remain constant.  We encourage the use of our 
engine software for accessing our data.  If people still do not want to 
use our software, then they can export our data if they desire (and gain 
any permissions required from the publisher).

Thanks for your desire to contribute.
