Obviously size is not the only issue, loading performance appears 
to be at least as important to most people using binary infoset 
formats and gzip alone just increases the receivers loading 

There is a good paper linked from 
http://citeseer.nj.nec.com/cheney01compressing.html that 
discusses why compressing binary infoset representations can 
yield better compression results than gzip of XML.
