Im not sure I agree here, its possible to create a BinML which mimics
XML semantics,
with or without strong correlation to XML Information Items. If both a
are correlated then drifting could be prohibited.

This also means that parser could be written with SAX interfaces and
XML interoperability
on the DOM and SAX levels, but not on the XML text level, is achieved.
