The fully filebased DSes have many flaws. You're experiencing one of them ;)
As an experimental feature Steffen and I decided to enable it for TV 
1.4.x and it will stay in 1.5.x. But for future versions this feature 
might be removed or at least changed.

The purpose of having the DS as an external XML file is to have the 
chance of (SVN based) versioning, easier distribution and maybe easier 
development. The current approach (which technically existed in TV for a 
long time) resolves this with a full replacement of the DS record. But 
unfortunately the DS record holds important meta-information which can't 
be stored easily in the XML (e.g. the preview image or the 
storage-position (a.k.a. General Record Storage Page) and some others).

A long term solution could/will be a mixed solution - having the record 
based Datastructure carrying all the meta information but with an 
external file-based Datastructure-XML.

There's no decision yet when and how this will happen, but we're both 
not really happy with the current status of that, so this might happen 
in 1.6.

Hope this answers the question ;)
