Most of my concerns about this ware already raised by Brian (l18n, extra
size of distro, inconsistencies between subsystems, ...)

Also on top of this, having something like that would glorify
configuration of server via XML,
which is something we are trying to discourage  in favor of CLI / mgmt api.

Excuse my ignorance if this is already taken care of. But last time I
looked, using whatever management API was not very nice for container
runtime. i.e. configuration changed through API was not persisted.
I am wondering if this is already fixed somehow or is at least somebody
considering it as an important use case (I think it should).

Persisting server configuration changes made via the supported management APIs back to the config file has been done in AS 7.0 and later. Its a fundamental requirement.
