The reason why I didn't make that change was based on a comment made by
Illka, that this needed to be writable in the programmatic part of the
API (now in a separate document [2]).

But looking at it one more time, I' m not sure why this would be so, so
I've made the FormatData attribute read-only, and we can always change
it back later on if that appears to be needed.
