Hey all,
actually, after reading the web a bit, i tend to prefer the following


<key> is mandatory, but <data> is not.

The main reason is that a key can be any PD atom (except symbols with
spaces) in pool, and XML attributes must not contain certain characters
(like ' or " , probably others). The format looks a bit more general and
robust to me than the one with the attributes. It also _looks_ more
