Re: "Binary XML" proposals


	Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me that while you -may- gain 
some benefits from 'binary' XML, they'd really only be in terms of 
storage space and/or over-the-wire transmission speed.  As far as 
parsing is concerned, you'd still have to parse your binary format 
(and, where text is concerned, uncompress it or whatever) before you 
could use it to do much of anything.  You'd still have to build 
whatever internal structures you used, malloc() space, etc. before you 
could do any real processing of the data....
