That would be good. There are already some domain-specific binary
encodings, such as that used by WML, which do not have general
applicability; it would be nice if we could standardise on one before
there's a Babel explosion. The WML one, for example, uses single bytes to
represent element names I hear, meaning no document can contain more than
256 different element names... not such an issue with WML, but it means it
can't be used as a general binary-XML encoding... I'd be interested to
know if the MPEG-7 one has anything in common.
