It looks like they would produce something fairly human-readable (or at
least a lot better than the above example :). OTOH, implementing those
classes is a bit of work, and to get the benefits, you'd have to update
all -encodeWithCoder:/-initWithCoder: implementations, which is a lot of

Not that I know of. We should probably add a task for it, and maybe one
for 'support keyed coding in standard classes'. Looks like we'd be stuck
supporting two coding styles forever if we did that, though (and the
basic encode/decode incantations would exist in four copies (which need
to be kept in sync) for each class).
