Code refactoring for classes DataManager.java and its sister XMLSerializer.java

The class DataManager.java and its sister XMLSerializer.java are in particularly bad shape, in my opinion. There are literally dozens of public methods that all do more or less the same thing. Of course it's not clearly documented why they are all there or when to use which. Would it be too drastic to propose that we keep 1 single public method for each of the functions createMetadata, updateMetadata, validateMetadata, etc. ?
