The idea is to finally offer a better API towards the data. Also to
reduce the bandwidth usage. The XML file causes a LOT of traffic,
especially as many clients don't implement HTTP compression. :-(
This is also bad for users as they have to wait longer for:
- a large download (700k compressed, 7MByte uncompressed)
- parsing of the full XML file
Whereas this could be broken down into only delivering the necessary
data. More requests, less total transfer volume.
