never used it, just googled it...
seems to be a method for someone familiar with encoding, to create an XML configuration and share that with the "world".
Others, less familiar with encoding, could launch & configure a "dropbox" by pointing to the XML (e.g. on a URL, forum post, ...) and dropping files in the resulting window - thus bypassing all the complication of the program.
An alternative to using/sharing the normal presets...

Yes, that's exactly what it is designed for.
When things work together, things work.
