even it's own documentation says this is not a binary xml format (at 
least that we can rely on) because the authors reserve the right to 
change it at will and warn against storing a bnux transformed document 
because it may not be able to be decoded in the future.

how many xml principles does this break? perhaps it could be question of 
the week :)

worse - the encoder/decoder must therefore be deployed in pairs - and 
upgraded in pairs. this may later become the basis of something, but it 
is along way from being a binary xml coding that is useful in general.

i guess if you're going down this path you'd like to see an analysis of 
it's performance vis a vis the xml<->asn.1 tools.

and finally if gzip/zip type compressions can add even more - why not 
just use them and put the effort into more efficient gzip algorithms - 
or better still a gzip encoder/decoder chip :) for use in mobile phones etc.
