Stacks can also contain controls, each of which can be expressed as an 
array of properties.

You could craft an array-based format to allow storage and recreation of 
even complex GUI stacks.

What you'd have is a binary file dependent on a lot of scripted code.

Meanwhile, we already have a binary format handled robustly in the 
compiled object code of the engine. :)
