whats that phrase about the dangers of 'early optimisation'.... the usage 
of binary xml should be seen as an optimisation step, and is directly 
related to some level of critical adoption of xml technologies....  so I 
wouldn't discount it, just put it in its place.

once i've had time to review this binary xml effort, I'll comment on if its 
a well thought out effort.
