  Oh my ! You made that one ... Here is my viewpoint, feel free

of indirect flaming, here is my view on the topic:

  General compression on top of an XML serialization is fine [1].
But designing a "binary infoset serialization" would looses all
interoperability and designs achievements of the XML-1.0 W3C

[1] as in direct compression or more general packaging as the
    ZIP format of OpenOffice documents.
