However.. both these formats are directly extractable and at a

In terms of accessing the metadata

xar --dump-toc=foo.xml -f /usr/portage/packages/app-editors/vim-7.2.021.oxe

From there it almost becomes semantics since parsing the very small
amount of metadata is trivial. In this case I prefer a tool with
built-in support that I can checksum instead of just tagging xpak on the
end. Both have advantages depending how you look at it.
I would make the same conclusion as you just did.
