Thing is, I reckon any reasonably binxml parser would come with a tool (and 
it would be a simple tool to write) that maps it to and from textual XML. And 
it should be the case that parsers accept both text-XML and bin-XML while 
outputting your choice of format, so for development you could just run in 
"output text" mode anyway, saving the manual conversion tool for when 
something goes wrong in a live system and all you have are capture messages 
rather than the ability to recreate the problem on a test bed.

http://www.alaric-snell.com/xml-dev-threads.html#binxml is being extended to 
cover these points as fast as I can type :-)
