You mean for the "create -d" output? I agree and I've got such a patch
somewhere that I could polish off (and will).

I'd argue that the json output should be the default with sxp requiring
a special option, even though that break backwards compat with xm. I
have a hard time believing that the sexp printed by xl is close enough
to the xm one that people haven't already been hacking around it in
their parsers anyway...
