Re: [xml-dev] RFC for XML Object Parsing

If parsing _is_ a performance issue, because you need to determine,
and quickly at that, whether you need to parse _at all_, then XML will
_never_ be fast enough.  
Nothing beats encapsulated formats, where the "header" tells you the
length of the "object", so that if you decide, on the basis of a few
fields at the front that you don't need to handle the rest, then you
_immediately_ know how far forward to skip.  In XML, you always have
to _parse_ your way to the matching end-tag.

It really sounds like you're straining to solve the wrong problem.
