Then we are now in the infoset permathread.  Sure anyone can come up
with a framework that enables passing around binary representations of
XML. APIs like SAX and the .NET Framework's XmlReader can be implemented
over binary streams as well as text XML. 

I'm not sure where the idea that this is technology exclusive to Sun and
not Microsoft comes from. Can you clarify? 

A bird in the hand is safer than one overhead.
