i thought the security concerns were well stated and should not be 
overlooked. we could easily find binary xml quickly becomes yet another 
way to compromise systems.....

it was also important to note the tag's unconvinced position on why 
binary? and prove it...  why - parsing, compression or speed or all and 
it is it end to end or transmisison etc. and i guess in spite of all the 
case studies that must have been put in front of them they clearly 
weren't convinced.

as others have noted - a lot more pavements to walk on this one.
