Re: [xml-dev] Serialization of XDM - Use cases / Proposal

I'm going to ask what may be an obvious question, but wouldn't it make sense for a serialization of a sequence to correspond on the output to the serialization on the input? That is to say, if you had a structure:

("foo",5,<bar><bat/></bar>,<!-- foo -->)

internally, wouldn't that also be the serialization format? Admittedly, there's a little more complexity in dealing with fragments and the like, but at least with the sequence case, the delimiters would presumably be those used for XQuery on input.

I also think there is merit in something like the following:

         <xs:unsignedShort length="4" />

Where the original document can be reconstructed merely by taking the
/*/*[2]/* branch, and there is one element in the type branch for every
element in the data branch.
