I thought it might save on DOM pollution. I have been playing with a debugger
and the global vars passed between the Web runtime and debugger are
outrageously bloated.

Loads of PHP developers write something like:

$s = simplexml_load_file(rawurlencode("config.xml"));
echo json_encode($s);

Though it looks pretty darn ugly.

Well it is complicated when you think you have to wait until all the people
upgrade to the next version in order to expose something new.

Though, I can't think of a Debian package that relies on the
debian/control file for anything during runtime.

Please consider my comments as resolved.
