As Thomas replied in the other list, there is no documentation other  
than the file itself. (and perhaps some comments in the KMM code which  
reads and/or writes it?)  I also found one or two much older mentions  
of essentially the same thing in  various KMM lists (user, devel,  
sourceforge, ) while googling.

If it's XML, there really ought to be a DTD.  While it may not matter  
if KMM is the only program to use .kmy files, it would afford an  
additional layer of certainty when there are others, such as an android  
app.  Unfortunately, I have no idea how much effort it would take to  
create one, but I suppose I'll file a wishlist and add relevant  
documentation to my to-read list.
