I object to doing this in a non-normative fashion on the grounds that it
will render XP neutered for real world applications. ebXML, BizTalk, and
XForms all require this functionality and there is plenty of prior work for
the WG to pick from, so there is no reason to not do this. DIRECT handling
of binary data is out of scope. INDIRECT handling of binary data is well
within the scope of our charter, and I do not believe XP will ever reach rec
without this.
