Chris, the objective of the binarization is to provide a compact binary 
representation of the original markup (SVG in our case) in order to reduce the 
size of the transmitted content especially in limited wireless networks.

Now two questions arise: 

1- Is the binarization of the markup is necessary, thought that WAP models do 
not know a great success?
2- If yes, do we need a new binarization specific to SVG?
