Quite so. But there are still initiatives such as 


which attempts to define a 'compact binary representation of XML'.
(If going down that route, I'd rather have a compact binary
representation of whatever it was that I'm representing in XML, rather
than of the XML that I might've used as a textual representation of the
data... But then that really wouldn't be XML.)
