Re: EXI in ECN?

I am quite familiar with ASN.1, but would not consider myself an expert 
on everything that can be done with ECN.  However, based on what I know 
about ECN and about EXI at this point, I do not believe it is possible 
to capture all of the semantics that are involved in encoding or 
decoding EXI messages with ECN.  The primary reason has to do with the 
ways the grammars evolve as information is processed in converting XML 
to EXI.  This "learning" cannot be expressed in static terms.

I hope this helps.  If anyone has any more advanced knowledge of ECN and 
knows a way to describe EXI using it, I would be interested to hear it.
