A robust sharing solution

It's been mentioned that the Niantic team would like a more robust solution for sharing agent profiles, missions, etc. in a way that would make the shared artifact more useful. For example, it's been suggested that agent profiles could be shared in CSV format in addition to PNG format. My suggestion is: why not cover both bases with one file? PNG files support "tEXt" chunks which permit storage of arbitrary metadata. The profile could be exported as a PNG file, with a tEXt chunk containing the stats in a format more suitable for reading by tools. You'd have a single file that's equally useful for both humans and machines.
