UCD in XML or in CSV? (is: UCD in YAML)

That version has been announced in the Windows 10 Hub several weeks ago. I
think it is part of the 1809 version (for now RS5 prerelease for Insiders)
that may be deployed in the final release coming soon.
I hope you'll have also the option to switch the newline convention after
loading and before saving to convert these newlines. and may be define the
new default preference, so we will finally forget the CRLF convention.

I have it working quite well inthe Insider fast ring.

In all IDE editors however (including Developer Studio), the 2 or 3
conventions were still available since long.
