On http://www.cafeconleche.org/ (doesn't seem to be any reliable way to 
link):

Regarding XOP:

"Fortunately, this does not seem to be a generic binary encoding of 
XML, just a more efficient means of bundling non-XML binary data with 
XML documents."

Regarding MTOM:

"I find the string typing implicit in this model to be seriously 
broken. It loses information (i.e. it's a lossy compression format) and 
makes too many assumptions about what content is and is not relevant."
