JOSM and .kml

I wonder why JOSM does not recognise .kml files.  Could it?  If so, might it be in prospect?

Re: JOSM and .kml

Apparently at least some .kml files can be opened in JOSM if you install the Open Data plug-in: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOS … FKMZ_files

I thank you for your immediate and helpful reply; the opendata plug-in does allow me to open my .kml files.  I have discovered recently how much better they are than .gpx because they retain their attributes in my Locus Map app and now JOSM, which is so useful.

Re: JOSM and .kml

I was always able to open *.kml with this plugin. Seems your files are special. Can you post a link to one?

The way in which I wrote my reply confuses, clearly: I shall state in another way, I am able to open my .kml files with the opendata plug-in; I am satisfied, totally.
