Thanks Robin.  

I believe your answer is sufficient at present. 
I'll have a look at the documents you cite.

Much appreciated.

I believe that the TAG has more or less suspended its work on this 
specific issue while waiting for the output from the XBC WG. The XBC WG 
does not have the mandate to produce a normative answer to the question 
of how binary XML relates to XML 1.x but we will be making suggestions 
on this topic at the end of our work, which is expected in March 2005 
(and we fully expect to be on time). These suggestions will help the TAG 
and/or the XML Activity to take action (at least, we hope they'll help ;).

We have at this point published drafts of two documents, one for Use 
Cases, and the other for Properties:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/xbc-use-cases/
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xbc-properties/

These aren't final and the internal versions are more advanced. They 
should be republished next month. Notably, the next UC draft will very 
likely feature a new use case about sensor nets which may be of interest 
to you. We will also follow up with documents about Measurement 
Methodologies and a more conclusive one attempting to characterize the 
whole problem.
