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.

Curious, Michael.
Do you feel this same way about XSD being used to encode type information for "regular" XML ?
