[...] Let me give you instead the perspective of a one time standards developer (for computer graphics programming languages GKS and CGM): very probably XCF will NOT be a "standard of the future". One common feature of standards as the standards developing community understand them is that "standards" tend to be all encompassing of features important among existing work alike "things". In this case, Photoshop is the 800 pound gorilla in the digital image painting industry, and xcf cannot support many of the features (like grouped layers, if I understand correctly) that Photoshop users find very valuable and pass about in "work in progress" container files.
