Except that JVMs are still fairly fat, so they're much harder to
provide on slimmer platforms (as might be found for embedded
systems). If the data is highly regular (in the sense that it has the
same structure every time), is the kind of thing that makes RPC
systems really shine, whether you use XML (XML-RPC or SOAP) or
something else (ONC-RPC, ASN.1, CORBA).
