Often, solutions that can be considered “simple” for emitters of data
externalize costs, burdening consumers – especially when “simple”
prevents using off-the-shelf components like XML parsers (if a site
returns JSON in a case where ATOM might suffice) or DOM structures.

Usually, data is (way) more often consumed than generated.

Can you elaborate how you would use Python's ElementTree (or a similar
data structure) with srcset in an “embarrassingly simple” way?
