To form an opinion on this you'd have to have an application in mind and
then do some performance comparisons under realistic loads. My intuition
says it doesn't matter much how fat XML is for protocols -- the Internet and
LANs have scaled to push around lots of images and MP3s, which are huge
compared to SOAP or XML-RPC messages. Dave
