How can you migrate from Plone to Confluence

Does anyone know how to migrate / convert Plone to Confluence, most likely using the Universal Wiki Converter? I am not sure how to approach it on a couple fronts...

First, I am not sure how to actually get a full export of all the content in a Plone instance. I would like to be able to relationships between articles (hierarchy) as part of the export. Plone seems to have several add-ons, but none appear to do what I am looking to do. I think I found the data file, but it looks to be a large binary file.

Secondly, I am not sure what markup / language Plone uses... if its simply storing straight up HTML (which I am guessing) or if there is some sort of markup.

Does anyone have any insight into this?

I suppose you can expert the Plone to JSON data : http://developer.plone.org/content/importexport.html

then use the Confluence JSON-RPS API to restore the data https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+JSON-RPC+APIs

You can of course contact the UWC plugin provider for this. :)
