Congrats on getting X.694 out of the door, it is an interesting 
specification. That being said, I must admit I am surprised at your 
assumption that simply because ASN.1 produced a binary encoding of XML 
it has successfully solved all the problems that people attempt to solve 
when they turn to alternative encodings for XML.

Given that at the binary infosets workshop there was a considerable 
amount of doubt that any single solution could do the trick for the 
entire needs of the market, I would have expected anyone so sure of 
their results to show up and tell us about it :)
