> What would be the consequences to XML datatypes in relational
> databases should an XML binary standard be created?
None, I would have thought. I wouldn't expect an RDB to represent XML data
internally using either the standard ("XML") serialization or any standard
binary serialization, I would expect it to use its own internal
representation. Thus the fact that there's more than one standardized
external representation shouldn't matter one iota: provided of course that
the representations are truly equivalent.
