Any reason Magento2 decided against using one of the standard config file formats? Did the rest of the world get this so wrong?

I love how they decided to use plenty of XML in their framework, but decided they shouldn't use it for the actual environment configuration. I ask because if we should all be using plain code, so that we can keep all those pesky automation away, or... wait, that's incredibly stupid.

So what possible reason do Magento 2 core developers have, for this additional example of genius?
