Ken listed this one earlier:
There is a ton of literature tackling XML verbosity.
Note that the reasons for using messaging are clear. The reason for
using XML is, as others have said and I said long ago, to skip
the debate. When all one is debating is a syntax, that's plausible.
But it really isn't that simple because along with the syntax comes
the implementation of the framework, and the ubiquity of the format
incurs the chaos of unequal performance across the system. Messaging
affects all parts of the system(s).
No free lunch.

3. How many of the reasons from moving from a binary file format to XML
also apply to binary XML in web messages?
