I did not push you to use pandoc. You wanted something more xml-based
for home-baked conversions of the document. Docbook might help and it
would be more helpful to give some feedback than offer scathing 
metaphores for dev(s) who made that happen.

.xml based format of lyx is not going to happen for 2.4.
