Hi Todd,
Bit late with this but ..
My only thought was that it could provide a way for configuration automation.
The two way conversion could be used instead of parsing/unparsing
directly as done by the likes of Augeas.
I think people would prefer an official well-defined conversion to a
well-known alternative format such as json (or xml or yaml or other..)
