Concrete evidence of the costs and benefits would help. Let's say for
the sake of argument that you've convinced me-- what would I [actually,
you volunteered, Trevor :-) ] have to do to test this out with real
data in my environment? Are there reasonably priced or eval versions
of the ASN.1 tools that would support this kind of thing available?
And are the standards for describing the XML infoset in ASN.1 at all
mature? And how interesting are the "interesting" questions referred
to in your previous message, if one forgets about the alleged
optimizations obtainable if one does know the application schema?
