Sounds awfully complex for an RSC editor! There is no need for all this
- the RSC format is simple and strictly defined. All you need is to be
able to load/save a human readable version in a RSC editor, and have a
small command line tool to compile/decompile these files to/from the RSC
binary format.

Remember that this is GEM and not the web :-)

This can be done with very little effort in the AES, but it requires a
new RSC editor to handle the new format.

Sounds really slow to me. Way to complex to be beneficial. Remember, the
point in a human readable format is to make things easier to the
developer and maintainer, to trickier.
