I wonder if the file format for Keynote holds any indications it might be used for a broader application suite. Rumors about that the GoBe team may be working at Apple on an Office killer. One of GoBe's features was its integrated file format (one file format for documents, spreadsheets and presentations). The Keynote extention is apxl (or something like that), NOT something that is more fitting (like .key or .knt). APXL is a general enough extention that it could be used for any office suite applications. There is also some consernation that the file format is not more SVG-like. This could explain why Apple chose a unique XML schema--perhaps we are not seeing it all...
