If you have ever seen an export made to NeTEx you directly understand the 
tool just converts to a call based format a la GTFS - which is insane if 
you have a Transmodel definition at your hands.

What I expect from tooling that converts is to increase entropy at a 
conversion. Especially if the "latest NeTEx" is so rich in its vocabulary 
you wonder why you praise it, when most of the people don't use it 
beyond the GTFS simplistic use case.
