I'm reasonably convinced that ASN.1 makes more sense than XML for a lot
of projects where vendors are investing vast amounts of money and

If some aspect of ASN.1 can cover mixed content and open content models,
I'm happy to welcome it to my regular list of XML schema languages.
Otherwise, I'll be happy to continue promoting ASN.1 as an _alternative_
to XML, albeit one with ASN.1->XML->ASN.1 interoperability.

(It's the anyXML->ASN.1->anyXML part that seems to remain a problem.)

I also wish there were open source tools for ASN.1 that just reported
the contents of an ASN.1 message, more like the open-ended approach that
XML parsers have generally taken.

There could be some very cool stuff there.
