Re: Is it time for the binary XML permathread to start up agai
<rant> Do we really need another binary XML standard? I mean, what's wrong with Fast Infoset for those who absolutely need binary XML? It's an ITU standard, it already has some implementations that have been successfully interop-tested, and it seems to workk reasonably well. Haven't those guys at all those WGs better things to do than to reinvent the wheel? </rant> So is anyone willing to enlighten us how exactly is EXI better than FI?
