Very nice.  I played with some early projects related to this like
COINS.  Very useful and better than a 'proprietary' Java format.

On the other hand, what I'm concentrating on is quite a bit different,
although obviously they could be married.  A bsXML library would look
like a collection instance that would allow in-place data members,
including update, when that kind of use makes sense which saves the
serialization/deser steps altogether.  No object creation, no copying,
probably faster traversal, and no garbage collection.

In one Java web application, a single run through the pages of the site
generated over 250,000 objects that had to be created, managed, and
garbage collected.  My aim is to reduce that to close to zero.
