Exchanging typed data makes sense to me. Doing it by reducing all the 
data to text, and then sending the type information separately in 
another document, to be matched up with the serialized instance by means 
of a complex parsing process, doesn't make much sense at all. If you 
want to send typed data, the type information should be embedded in the 
instance.
