You can have a binary opaque format and a unique application that processes that data, or... You can take the view that data is the primary thing and so long as the data is encoded in a documented (or even partially self documenting) format such as XML, different applications that may use completely different internal models may share the data effectively. It would have been a disaster if every XML process had had to use whichever XML parser came first, or had to use the DOM for example. Why should Maple interpreting MathML use any code shared with a browser displaying the same MathML? What is the Prime application?
