Well, I've never really used YAML, but looking at some example, here's a few
* I think SSDF looks just a bit more natural. For example strings are just
as you'd define them in most programming languages (using quotes), while in
YAML it's a string if it can't be interpreted as anything else.
* SSDF supports binary arrays (of any dimension and of most common types),
which are always compressed (using ZLIB).
* SSDF is line based: there's one data element per line. This also means
that you cannot write multi line strings, which you can in YAML.
