File format & typing both raise questions for me about how aware the format needs to be. I find many of the common tools frustrating because they use formats like JSON or YAML that have no concept of actual design data-types (lengths, colors, etc), so everything is considered a string.

That may be a tooling issue, but also may be worth thinking about… If it's worth having a typed format, is it worth ensuring that format includes design-specific types?
