The original purpose of the serialization was for comparing the output
of schema implementations. It has also proved useful for teaching and
a variety of testing purposes.
I have a stylesheet for converting the serialized pre-schema infoset
to HTML tables (http://www.cogsci.ed.ac.uk/~richard/infoset.xsl), but
I haven't had time to do this for the PSVI.
It is certainly very verbose for a transport format, though it
naturally compresses very well :-) One other possible use is for
bootstrapping a validator, if you want to always validate schemas with
