Check out the XML package.  ctv is one package that uses XML
that you could look at.

Its hard to say whether the extra work to use XML is worthwhile
for you.   There are many XML tools around and the format
helps formalize whatever format you are using but XML files tend
to be longer and  there will be more effort involved in using them
which may or may not be worth it to you.
