RE: Another binary XML approach

From: Olivier Dubuisson [mailto:Olivier.Dubuisson@francetelecom.com]

>avoid reinventing the wheel

Given the number of binary proposals and extant implementations, 
that can't be avoided.  A WML developer would claim ASN.1 and 
a French telco are reinventing the wheel.  A number of other 
companies probably are as well.

>embedded devices, high-volume transactions, efficiency, compression ratio,

No proof has been offered that the solutions for items one and two converge 
in the qualities of items three and four.  Anecdotal evidence has been 
offered from developers that the time spent in parsing and the  
compression ratio gained does not warrant the effort.  

>careful design) that my company (with others) supports what is described

That is not easy to quantify.  ASN.1 exists and your company and unnamed 
parties support it.  So far, that is the evidence offered.  I have 
looked at the documents at the sites listed.  So far, no quantitative 
evidence to support the claims is offered.

I accept that there are those who assert the need for the standard 
XML binary.  So far, that is easy to discern.  No case has been 
made for any approach or requirements offered that would enable 
reasonable minds to choose among approaches offered.  It is fine 
to take this offlist, but at some point XML-Dev list members 
might reasonably expect results of the discussions to be 
brought back for consideration.
