Can the XML format be adjusted to use attributes preferentially?

Eg, from qstat -r -xml

instead of 

<granted_PE name="mpi">4</granted_PE>
<hard_request name="shpc+"

could one simply emit:

<job_info number="283" name="d-v1-r2000" owner="olesen>
<granted_PE name="mpi" value="4"/>
<hard_request name="shpc+" resource_contribution="4000.000000" value="1"/>

This could help somewhat with (really cheap) regexp-based parsing.
Would this also qualify as a possible RFE?
