My understanding of GS internals are fairly patchy, but that seems sensible.
Is there an example of this with a bit more context, i.e. one that actually
loads an XML file and runs the import step for that whole file?

Do you just mean "better" or "incompatible"? I guess in this case they
wouldn't be part of a profile, but perhaps they could be and just never run
in the normal portal_setup way. Or would having them registered invalidate
or break a manual import mechanism?
