Hi Nick,

This is a good suggestion, although it should probably be a space 
separated list of QNames.
There is an ednote suggesting that the WG needs future discussion on all 
manner of $format specifications.

John, 

Shouldn't we make format a QName and say that an implementation may add 
values outside the default namespace, for both parse and serialize. And 
maybe say that currently all other supported values the xml are 
implementation defined?

Kind regards,

This was a Category:XForms20 feature: 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Parse_and_serialize_functions 

It was suggested to make it compatible with XPath 3.0 parse-xml(),  The 
result is compatible, not identical. Differences are explained in an 
editor note, which will be fodder for discussion.
