Why would an industry specific XML binary format eventually creep onto the Web without a push from the W3C or similar "standards organization"? We already have standardized "binary XML" formats like WBXML & BiM and I haven't seen a push to replace serving RSS feeds with XML 1.0 (for example).

There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

Again, it's all a question of balancing the cost of producing a standard
binary encoding for all of us (with the problems that you outline)
against the risk of having one that's optimized for an industry such as
the mobile industry that the desktop/server community will end up being
forced to use anyway (or that will split the Web and other nasty things).
