Serialization docs lack information on specific formats

...promises that the serialization docs will give an explanation of the serialisation formats. They don't. In fact the initial-data docs come closest to doing this with the JSON and YAML examples, but nothing for the XML.
So, the bug is that the promise should be fulfilled and the actual formats should be documented somewhere in:
For example, what brought me to this:
- How do I do a datetime in JSON?
- What's the schema for the XML import? How do I do different field types with it?
