You at least need some macroscopic structure. Sometimes [sectionname] (using the the config files used by samba and many others) is enough, but sometimes you really do what an hierarchical structure. And in that case, mimicking the structure of a programming language makes sense (though I would prefer to follow python myself).
... because really, there is no difference between the 'program' and the 'data' - they are both streams of bytes and both need to be interpreted by some machine...
