Where do you get those numbers from? Results naturally vary a lot according to
the data set, but given a sufficiently smart scheme compression of the
structural information tends to revolve around 2% of the original size (x20
factor) quite easily.
With some SOAP messages it can get really stupid on some requests with factors
And then the rest varies according to the data/structure ratio, whether zlib is
an option or not, whether some things can be optimised away, etc. but 50% would
seem highly unusual to me.
