IMHO a waste of space.

But compatibilty should not an issue because if all code uses only the APIs 
to set/get flex form data, TYPO3 could store them in any format it wanted.

Or we could add a TCA option to store data as array rather then XML. So it 
won't affect old extensions. And those which want to switch must provide an 
update script, which should be straightforward and pose no problems.
