Yes indeed.

They are still working on getting everything to work with XML, and 
Unicode, and HTML and CSS and SVG.

Once they have done that, they may be willing to look at a earlier-stage 
format. Please note the singular here. That means that the IETF would 
have to be able to agree on a single format, the way we managed to agree 
on XML as the central format. That may not be impossible, but my guess 
is that it will at least take a lot of time.
