To be fair, they _didn't_ invent a new format. They just picked 
one that's far less well-known than what they were using before. 
Now, arguably, it's still a bad idea, because SDL is nowhere near 
as well-known as JSON, but they didn't invent it.

Though the fact that the site that seems to be the main site for 
SDL is down right now, isn't exactly encouraging:


So, while SDL wasn't invented by the dub team, its reach beyond 
them does not appear to be large.
