I am scheduled to speak on the topic of binary infosets at XML Europe in May. I 
have all sorts of field tests and lab tests from a variety of situation that I 
believe are credible and repeatable.

I can fairly easily pick a few representative cases and expose them there (and 
put up slides/notes on it for those that won't be attending). For that matter 
I'd love to know which particular type of case studies people would be 
interested in seeing (in the talk, but also in much more detail online if need 
be). I do not intend to have people that don't need binfosets to use them, I'd 
just like to convince them to stop throwing stones my way :)
