I would have thought that the best way of dealing with this issue is to use
a "pleasant" syntax which was easy to  process and implement another layer
to compress the payload for transmission.

Best in some contexts, but not all.  The compression layer has runtime
costs, in both code and memory footprint, and processing time.  In some
contexts (e.g., very resource-constrained items like cell phones and Palm
Pilots), these costs can be significant.
