I'd be interested in detailed comparisons between your approach and
Efficient XML Interchange (EXI), which can transmit XML documents
without actually sending pointy brackets at all.

Although there's certainly interest in making XML faster, it has to work
e.g even if attributes are re-ordered or rewritten. In other words, you
can't break the promise than any XML processor can read any XML
document, without creating a fragmentation.

But it might be acceptable to have something as fragile as (my
understanding of) what you describe solely for the purpose of

However, in that case, it should be compared to EXI and, if appropriate,
could perhaps be used as a basis for further work within the EXI Working
