XML is not a data serialization language. It is a markup
language, where text (i.e. words and sentences) can be annotated.
People who have been sold XML as a data serialization language
should be aware that XML was not designed to allow round-tripping
of arbitrary strings. To send arbitrary strings, encode in a bin64
or adopt some more appropriate technology (JNI, YAML, etc).
