I'm not sure what Jean said in Amsterdam, but I was involved in briefing him on the MS internal consensus about binary XML. We (and Sun, IBM, Oracle, etc.) use binary XML for a number of internal purposes. Some companies seem to have hammered out an internal consensus that something marginally smaller and faster than XML is good enough to be an internal standard and possibly a generic W3C Recommendation. We think that that defeats both the point of binary XML (optimization for specific purposes when interchange is not a consideration) and textual XML (universal support for generic purposes when interchange is the primary consideration). MS has invested 7-8 years in getting XML 1.0 on every desktop and server; it's time to exploit the benefits that brings, not add yet another dimension to the interop complexity space. That's Microsoft's "tactic" in opposing binary XML standardization ... and XML 1.1, XSD 1.1, use case-specific profiles of XSD, etc.
