What kind of code do you use to go between objects and XML?  (I ask,
to help understand why the verbosity is "useless" and "redundant".)

Would it be easy enough to make a version of the BNF->XML table which
showed the nicer serializations you're thinking of?  It would make a fun
contrast to the version with the RDF/XML serializations.      (it's kind
of tedious to do the whole table, though, maybe.)
