There are a lot of heavyweights behind this. Looks like a
nice sensibly-designed language, not that I know anything
about syncing PDAs.
Interestingly, their namespace URI points at a DTD
(although SyncML messages need not be valid), and yet
the page at http://www.syncml.org/downloads.html seems like
strong evidence why something like RDDL is a good idea.
Sadly, they allow WAP's binary-XML representation, although
it seems obvious that there are better ways to compress XML
than replacing tags with numbers. -Tim
