You've probably lost information though (for some value of  
"information"). AFAIK the MS Office binary format has stuff in it  
that MS themselves have totally lost track of long ago.

I guess all this talk will be more interesting when the EXI WG goes  
ahead and publishes.

Hey, it's really nice to see chatter of binary XML come up and not  
really care at all :-) Ah the frivolous joys of high-powered  
computers with massive bandwidth!
