Is it such a bad thing that something looks like a script? There simply is
no way around it, you need to define somewhere what tag causes what command
to run. You can obfuscate this and let the DTD define all that and have
cryptic stuff in the xml profile, or just live wiht it and make the profile
a lot easier to read and write and edit and understand.
