Binary XML 

XML industry has reached the mountain top:

If this thing continues, and adds another stupidity on top of a base stack, we'll be back in the 70s.

Processing power and network throughput will handle the load of cross boundary XML being serialized as XML 1.0 + Namespaces. We do not need XML 1.1, which is a flop anyway, and for sure, we don't need another Infoset.

Let the major vendors deliver binary Infoset for intra-firewall scenarios. Every other form of communication mechanism should use the d*mn angle brackets, if it chooses the XML dialect for the payload.
