Or you can already have experience with the content in
both the production and deployment scenarios and know
you need "a" binary independent of the XMLization. That
is the case for real time 3D. VRML needed the binary prior
to X3D. We already have the experience. Again:
1. The case for a binary depends on the application.
2. The case for a generalized XML binary will depend
on requirements that enough XML applications share to
to justify the specification costs.
It really must not be simply "they are doing it in the
wild already and we must control that for [Put Reason Here]".
That would be like trying to force bonobos to adopt the
mating habits of chimpanzees. Surface similarities don't
make the case particularly 'in the wild'.

Which would seem to validate my point, given that often you don't
know this in advance. Prototypes can be a good thing when it comes
to performance testing.
