 I'm going to add a suggestion to `close` as a `wontfix`.

 I tend to agree that allowing plugins and themes to include their own XML
 in the file could potentially cause all sorts of problems and instability.
 I'm not very familiar with the internal workings of the Importer plugin
 either, but I would assume that without alterations to the import process
 as well, the additional data added to the export file would be worthless
 (unless there are hooks in the plugin that would allow additional
 processing of custom data).

 I'll leave this open for a few more months to allow for additional
 feedback, but discussions can always continue on closed tickets as well.
