"For example, assuming MIDI data is binary, it might carry two notations.
The first would indicate that it is base64-encoded -- remember that this
is still character data -- and the second would indicate that it is MIDI
data. Based on the first notation, the application would pass the
character data to a base64 decoder to translate it to binary. Based on the
second notation, the application would pass the now-binary data to a MIDI
application, which could play it for your enjoyment."
Just from a practical standpoint though, if you found an element that had
say three notations. One said it was MIDI, one said it was Base64, and one
said it was zipped. Was it base64'd then zipped, or zipped then base 64'd?
How would one indicate the ordering of original transformations in such a
situation, so that it could be untransformed correctly back?
