Starting external programs without using the EXE.xml

Is it possible (or could it be possible) to start external EXE's when MSFS starts without adding entries the to EXE.xml.

XML files are very sensitive as we all know. Any invalid character in them and they stop working.
When you have multiple developers all trying to edit the same EXE.xml, things often get messed up.

We experienced this in FSX and P3D regularly, and we are experiencing it again in MSFS.

Maybe I'm missing I'm missing something but it would be so helpful if we start external EXE's when MSFS starts without using any XML files.
