Subject: Document Transition Request: First Public Working Draft "XML
Binary Characterization Use Cases"

Hi all,

the XML Binary Characterization Working Group requests First Public 
Working Draft transition for the document:

XML Binary Characterization Use Cases

to be published as soon as this transition request is approved.

The Working Group's decision to proceed with these documents was made 
during its 22 July teleconference, logged at [1]


Abstract and Status Sections:

XML Binary Characterization Use Cases


This document describes use cases for evaluating the potential benefits 
of an alternate serialization for XML. The use cases are documented here

to understand the constraints involved in environments for which XML 
employment is currently problematic because of one or more inherent 
inefficiencies in XML 1.x. Desirable properties of alternate XML 
serializations to address the use cases are derived and discussed in a 
separate work of the XML Binary Characterization Working Group.

Status of this Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its 
publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of 
current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical 
report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at 

This is the First Public Working Draft of the XML Binary 
Characterization Use Cases document.

This document has been produced by the XML Binary Characterization 
Working Group, which is part of the XML Activity.

This document will be part of a series of documents following this work 
on Use Cases determination. Further work in the XML Binary 
Characterization Working Group will focus on characterizing the 
properties that are required by the use cases, and establishing 
objective, shared measurements to help judge whether XML 1.x and 
alternate binary encodings provide the required properties.

This is a First Public Working Draft and is expected to change. The XML 
Binary Characterization Working Group does not expect this document to 
become a Recommendation. Rather, after further development, review and
refinement, it will be published and maintained as a Working Group Note.

Comments on this document should be sent to 
public-xml-binary-comments@w3.org (public archive). It is inappropriate 
to send discussion emails to this address.

Discussion of this document takes place on the public 
public-xml-binary@w3.org mailing list (public archive).

Publication as a Working Draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C 
Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or 
obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite 
this document as other than work in progress.
