See http://www.infoworld.com/article/03/09/19/HNfastwebservices_1.html

Let me see, they're going to do Web Services with a binary XML format 
based on ASN.1, which is "a telecommunications standard that is the 
binary equivalent of XML Schema"; Sun Distinguished Engineer 
Pelegri-Llopart said "The main point here is there is almost an order of 
magnitude between straightforward Web services using XML encoding and an 
implementation that takes care of binary encoding."  They're also going 
to have a "Fast Infoset" and "Fast Schema".

It's paranoid to think that some malefic Infoworld writer would assemble 
a story entirely out of elements designed to irritate me.  A fair-minded 
person would, I guess, shut up and see if this bears fruit, so I will.
Cheers, Tim Bray
