TM doesn't care about which format you use. Unfortunately it can't  
write out in ASCII, but worse, it can't preserve the current comments  
in the ASCII format.

Long-term we'll have to move the comments (which are worth  
preserving) to XML using:
    comment = "...";

I'd say, if the original file contains comments that you didn't  
author, _don't_ commit it as XML w/o first converting (or at least  
checking) the comments.
