How would you convert the data?  Is there currently a software available to
do this?

I've read the terms of use for poifactory.com and it doesn't look we can
include these as part of the point share exchange site. You could use the
data for your personal system thoe, you'd just need a converter for the
files. Kind of stupid since the data is technically free but the license
they have it under is somewhat restrictive.
