comment Is Warsaw Concerto a piano concerto?
No well-founded opinion here will be good enough for a definitive answer. I guess you have no choice but to ask at the competition office.

While I agree, that MusicXML provides only a small contribution (the main focus being score typesetting), the headline as well as the first enumeration point justify mentioning it.

comment When tuning a guitar, why is it only in tune for a moment?
Just for one aspect: the frequency changes not only with length of the string (even this is the most visible factor), but also with the tension. Tuning a guitar string will not change the length, but only the tension. I don't assume your are interested in the formula?

According to my few tries nothing is lost during import/export. The decisions like beam grouping and stem direction are all explicitly expressesed in XML, so while the importing program might produce slightly different output, everything [beyond the used "font"] was preserved.
