I certainly was not suggesting that any metadata would appear in the
game, for the record. The only reason metadata would matter for
clients is for NKI synchronization. But I think that for now we're all
happy with using a flat list, gzip, and a timestamp.

I am personally leaning towards just using plain text and gzip for the
standard output format. Nice and simple.
