Format looks OK.

I think we might bike-shed on the names here a bit -- 'real-path' is
pretty ambiguous as both paths are 'real', one is just the file system
path and the other is the cache path. I like using the file system path
as the contents of the element and the cache path as the property, but
perhaps the property name could be 'cache-path' instead?
