Try to locate where on your file system Ulysses stores your files and you'll know what I mean. I found them buried in ~/Library in a confusing mass after I got creative with searching in Finder and grep on the Command Line.
Compare that to the approach highlighted in the iA article I linked to. Their point was that such schemes, along with content locked in databases, binary formats and package formats are contrary to the benefits of plain text. I'm reviewing Ulysses and it resonated with me because even though Ulysses uses plain text (sort of), it feels to me much less transparent than even Scrivener's package/rtf format.
I can see an interact with Scrivener projects on the FS. I can do the same with plain markdown documents in dropbox. I cannot do that with Ulysses, which obscures data in an iCloud library
