As I understand it, the Virtual Token Descriptor itself is a binary 
format that describes the structure of a textual XML document.  The VTD 
project has an API that supports incremental update to the binary 
format to point the updated element to a new block of text.  I guess 
that means that the updated text itself would have to be re-serialized 
via the API to make it well-formed XML again, right Jimmy?

I find the VDT stuff an interesting combination of binary and textual 
"XML" (broadly defined, let's not get into that permathread right now) 
tools that may hit a sweet spot between performance and conformance, 
for those who can live with a subset of XML that (at least currently) 
doesn't include entities other than the built-in ones.
