If we did, then why do we have 1 manual redirection to apply and 2
automatic redirections to see the results in the format we agreed on?
(plus another link to click to see the summary instead of a page showing
basically only a menu.)

Yes, that's the main reason why I still provide the old format, too.
Additionally, the metacomm postprocessing failed several times and the
developers didn't have any uptodate test results. I'm still under the
impression the XML based postprocessing procedure is a bit fragile.

This is a good idea.
