Should I use a specific format to create my News sitemap?

"We encourage using the Sitemap protocol to create a News sitemap, because it allows webmasters to provide additional information about pages on their sites. In addition, a sitemap based on this protocol can be used by all the major search engines, as the protocol is offered under the terms of the Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons License."

Can this be done with the generator tool?

Hate to bump my own post, but I would really like an answer from the dev team.
