You can ignore the XYZ values if you like, although this can complicate
things when reading the chart (spurious warnings, that can be suppressed
with the -S flag). Alternatively you could create the XYZ values
using a previous or approximate profile for the device.

what is the purpose of XYZ values in a target file ?  can I fake them
probably not and if no why?

It is to help sanity check the chart reading, and to provide features such
as automatic strip direction recognition, or wrong strip reading.
