That's a pretty good write up.  

Wow.  Live long enough and you're likely to see just about everything. 
But, honestly, I never thought I'd witness the W3C adopting the
precautionary principle in my life time.  Congratulations!

Binary XML is just about the second dumbest idea I could imagine.  And
I don't mean that in just the negative way.  As I've quipped
(elsewhere) before, try hard enough and you'll have reinvented IIOP. 
Which, as we all know, is a fantastic idea in and of itself.

Cheers, Jason Aaron Osgood / Seattle WA
