the protocol layer would be HTTP,SMTP etc. These protocols employ MIME. The
process of content negotiation might provide something like:
Content-type: application/xml; encoding="compressed-xml"
I'm not sure about what DOM to DOM communication means, the DOM doesn't
currently have any standard methods to even create XML documents, let alone
provide communications support. Most parsers accept an href. You could
propose a new protocol such as "x-xml:..." but better might be to request
your encoding type in the HTTP request Accept: header and then check the
