Splunk Add-On for Microsoft Sysmon: Is XML preferred or recommended?

Questions in the inputs.conf

[WinEventLog://Microsoft-Windows-Sysmon/Operational]
disabled = true
renderXml = 1

I see the default is to disable XML however there are vague references to XM in the doc.   I saw it source types it to XML in the next line.

source = XmlWinEventLog:Microsoft-Windows-Sysmon/Operational

Are both types possible and is XML preferred or recommended?  I was looking for some advice and didn't see any in the doc. 

Thank you.
