An (elf) core file is an elf file, with metadata in the elf program headers, so I think this would naturally fit into yaml2obj. Unfortunately, yaml2obj currently does not support program headers (but there is a TODO to add that).  If that TODO is fixed, we would have a yaml representation of both core files and elf executables (which we also can't do because they have program headers, and yaml2obj strips them).

The tricky part there is the specifying the interaction between program headers and section headers, as they describe overlapping views of the same data.
