Re: [xml-dev] Packaging (was Re: [xml-dev] Interoperability)

Another format that should be considered is DIME:


It seems pleasantly simple and well-designed. You can stream it for both 
input and output.  It is being used by the Web Services Routing Protocol


so will probably get implemented quite widely.

To use DIME as the XML packaging mechanism, the first record in the DIME 
package would be meta-data, presumably in some XML format.  On the hand it 
doesn't provide random access.
