Re: DOM serialization
Because DOM is an interface, you don't know details of its implementation. It may be that the cost of generating or parsing XML is small compared to the constant cost of accessing the DOM data or building the DOM data. You cannot save a DOM tree simply by saving every byte between two addresses, in particular (unless the implementation allows this and provdes some non-DOM mechanism). If the binary format of the document preserves lots of pointers, then it may be that the binary form is larger than the XML form. This may take more time to parse (i.e., deserialize), even though binary.
