In the interest of fairness, I've spoken to a great many proponents  
of efficient XML and interested parties, and I've only very rarely  
seen that argument come up other than as a joke. What I have seen far  
more often is people who don't see what is fundamentally less opaque  
about a text-based format (and if they're in the Web Services  
business, can we really blame them?).

Never ascribe to malice yadda yadda.
