The XML community clings to human readability for dear life when I suggest 
that one might want to use a more efficient encoding and have to use a tool 
when a developer is peering inside messages to debug, yet discards it willy 
nilly when they think I'm not looking :-)

 - uuugghh, I just ejaculated (sorry, ladies)!

That's the kind of experiment I was planning to perform this weekend, and the 
kinds of results I imagined getting.

The only difference is that I'd introduce gzipped versions of the text, 
serialised DOM tree, and XMLS data, including the time taken to deflate and 
inflate the data. Just since people keep raising gzipped text.

I'll try and do that this weekend...
