It would be so nice to have a universal interchange format that was open, removed from propriety software companies and able to translate more accurately.

The XML that Pr & Resolve read and generate is a legacy FCP7. AAF is AVID and still being tinkered with. fcpxml is of course proprietary and can change at the whim of Apple. Of the big three, only Resolve will import and export all three interchange types currently used plus EDL just in case. I do wish it could support OMF, as audio import via xml is poor. OMF is still the most reliable interchange as no-one is mucking around with it any more. Interchange formats are always a nightmare as long as they are being developed by companies competing for software market share.

I also swear by AAT which is able to cross translate many audio formats including proprietary software project formats.
