In summary, then, there are some good arguments for writing a
navigable XML-like binary format to allow large documents to be
processed with a DOM without loading the whole document into memory.
I can see very little argument for using a binary format simply for
space or efficiency.
One other case is indexing for efficient retrieval against huge document
sets as might be the case with an xml-centric search engine.
