I understand that not all uses of XML are via HTTP, but isn't there work
going on in the HTTP world to add compression?

Fundamentally, non-text, non-humanreadable. However the point of it is
to reduce the size of the XML. 


XML Serialization is necessary as without it, DOM could not be used to
create XML files. Binary XML is useful where bandwidth/storage is at
premium such in the WAP example.
