Does this message come from a time warp?  My understanding is that the
Use Cases document was published a long time ago and that the WG has

Subject: The first public Working Draft

The first public Working Draft of the XML Binary Characterization Use
Cases has been published. It's not complete as a number of use cases
still need to be written, and there is still some editorial work to be
done on the existing ones, but it's the first taste of what you'll get
from this working group, and your first chance to provide feedback.

As you may know, the task of the XML Binary Characterization WG (or XBC
WG for friends and family) is to gather information that will help
determine the nature of [the] use cases [for binary XML], characterizing
the properties that XML provides as well as those that are required by
the use cases, and establishing objective, shared measurements to help
judge whether XML 1.x and alternate (binary) encodings provide the
required properties.

This is to be a short-lived WG that will not produce Recommendations
(but rather just WG Notes indicating its findings), so if you have
feedback to provide you only have until circa the end of next March to
give it. After that, either the WG will have failed in providing answers
in time, or it will form an opinion on whether the W3C should produce a
standard in that area or not. So give it now!
Even if it's just the first document in a series and it isn't yet
complete, there is already meat to comment on.

Best Regards
