[wix-users] Is the XML schema for BootstrapperApplicationData documented anywhere?

The contents is standard to some degree as it includes information from the
bundle, packages. For example, if you use the WiXBalExtension, you'll get
entries for Bal:Condition elements being written to this table. If you were
to write an extension for WiX that includes extending the bundle authoring,
you'd like have custom tables written to this file to capture additional
data about your bundle. The data is only "standard" insofar what the
default bootstrappers would write, so there's no single schema file for it
as it can be extended. And the XML could potentially change between
different versions from WiX

The contents is documented in the source code mostly: If you look in the
sources, e.g. src\ext\BalExtension\wixext\data\tables.xml, you'll find the
entries the WixBalExtension adds to this file.

Here's an example for accessing it:
