So itâs better not to try to read the exact dump format.
Could we use a similar but more complete syntax instead?

Absolutely. The initial attempt for gimple fe was to use a tuple-based
syntax that is very easy to parse. But that was only chosen because it
simplifies parsing.

You first need to design a text representation for the IL that allows
conveying all the elements needed to instantiate the in-memory
representation of gimple.
Crazy idea, what about something that's modeled after LLVM's representation?
