On the other hand, that redundant data ought to compress quite well using currently available technology. Wouldn't that tend to mitigate the disadvantage? Suppose, too, that in some hypothetical successor to XML, the closing tag could be abbreviated to just </>, saving 15 characters per record. Now we're down to only 12 extra characters per record. (Ok, that's pretty much moot, but then again so is attribute-less XML.
