I've gotten into the (at least occasional) habit of using 'optimised' 
instead of 'binary' because I don't think the WG should presume that the 
solution -- if there is one -- necessarily relies on binarisation (even 
if all tests I've seen thus far makes it look very likely).

I think there's a hard rule that optimised XML MUST NOT support any 
feature that isn't supported by XML as well -- it's just optimisation. 
If it were to do packaged documents, it would be by encoding an XML 
expression of those.

One bit of going-to-get-started-with-any-luck work that is related to 
packaged docs is the W3C Workshop on Web Applications and Compound
