Legal procedures require time and money. Advocates are unlikely to work
for free - unless some fresh law graduates want to grab this opportunity
for exposure or unless an advocate is a FOSS enthusiast/close kin of one
etc.

While above option is open, I'd still invite technical suggestions on
feasibility to extract the computational and validation rules embedded in
those Excels to help write utilities of our own - or at least manually
apply them and create the xmls.

My knowledge of MS Excel is virtually 0 and is likely to be so with many
members on this list - by very nature of the list. Still if someone has
any ideas on this, please do share.

Mayuresh.
