To giver faster throughput and reduce the capacity for xml data processing errors. If there are swamp monsters from the past, then I say let them be, as long as I can blow my own bubbles where the water is warm and the air is clear. > I think that by forking XML yet again, you run the risk of > marginalizing yourself with a use case that buys you some efficiency > gain for a limited set of applications... Well... some swamp creatures are happy like that.... but adding in half baked concepts is a long tradition in xml..... Get out the old DEC RSTS/E PDP, if whatever xml descendent won't run on that thing.. with it's 9600 baud serial lines... then maybe only then I would be worried.. otherwise...

I can't see running out of memory or hard-disk space anytime soon.... seems to me, we should be more worried about our lifes work filling 5% of a memory stick.... makes you wonder what we do all day..
