I was not suggesting that the input format is the same as the output format, I
was talking about if the input format from every exchange is the same. let us
suppose that these exchanges are sending rss, one might be outputting rss 1.0 an
rdf/xml based format, another rss 2.0 an xml format with the possibility of
extension via namespaces, another rss 0.90 and so forth.

true, but I don't think the problem was described clearly enough to make a
proper response vis-a-vis performance. I hate it when they do that :)
