Fastinfoset *is* an international standard 
ITU-T Rec. X.891 | ISO/IEC 24824-1  is it not????  What would W3C
saying that this telecomunications standard is a Recommendation for
all XML use cases add to anyone's bottom line?

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.
