But why is the gdm conf file such crap ? Is this because gdm writers had
not lots of advanced configuration file libs at their disposition ?

No

It's because they consider :
1. the conf file is none of the user business
2. as a result little thought went in key naming
3. and even worse the keys themselves are not stable from release to
release

How is elektra going to help with this ?

It should be obvious having read http://www.libelektra.org. Anyways with a hierarchical key/value system like Elektra the solution is simple.

echo "true" >/$CONFIGDIR/system/sw/gdm/xdmcp/enable
