That is a ridiculous comparison.  Better:

XML 1.0:
<person name="Mike" age="28" married="true" birth="1968 1 10"/>

In the ConciseXML version of the date attribute, the data is a string that
has to be parsed, and you could just as well do the same in a reasonable XML
version.  There is no use in contriving stupid XML examples to make the
comparison more favorable to ConciseXML.
