Part of the problem there is JMX isn't versioned.  Or really specified at all.  It's a de
facto format that arises from the [voodoo] serialisation of the test plan's root ListedHashTree
of JMeterTreeNodes.  (Please, DO correct me if I'm wrong; even a bad spec would have been
useful months ago.)

In my mind, this is the major motivation for a test plan DSL: retain support for the "legacy"
JMX as much as possible (read and write), but otherwise have a clean break that lets the project
move forward sanely.
