Just my thoughts:

- Why 2 spheres you can only see one.
- It seems a bit big to me.
- Will there also be a directional light part? Of which the neg Y direction can be used to point parallel light sources.

I agree with the first two points above. I don't disagree with the third point, but feel that talking about that here would hijack the thread that was created for a different purpose.

In addition to those two points, I think if light.dat is going to be more physical like this, then using color 24 for the lines might not make the most amount of sense. They then disappear (at least in LDView) when edge lines are disabled. Also, setting the light's color to be a transparent color makes the small inner sphere visible, but it looks really strange when that is done, and it doesn't seem to make any sense to do that.
