Just read on news.com that the W3C consortium is considering a binary XML standard. This could really speed up a lot of transactions. The mayor drawback of course will be the fact that these messages are not human readable.

I believe this could be a good thing to speed up webservices. A binary XML message format should be much faster to process and parse than an ASCII version of the same message.
