TDB. As soon as I find out more, I'll be talking about them in my
blog. My guess is no, but...

Its actually going to be XML that gets compressed, but its not clear
if its going to be CAB style, ala InfoPath, or something more
universally usable. I'm of the expectation that compression will the
default, but not the only option.

I don't think the overlap is as great as some might expect. The volume
and user-expected velocity of network transmission should be
considerably lower, and the compression is going to help with that.
We're not dealing with object serialization so much either, more
knowledge serialization. If XML itself is the ultimate format for
remains unresolved, but it certainly answers the "why not just use
CDFs" bluntly.
