We use an XMLA client (Cognos) which has recently started requiring some

expectations from XMLA clients?  We could add a new property that governs
whether HierarchyInfo has square brackets or not.  That does mean yet
another property that won't apply to the majority of Mondrian use, however.

An alternative would be to allow replacing or extending the
DefaultXmlaResponse with a custom class that addresses any differences like
