I'm not sure one can reach a complete good idea/bad idea resolution. 
There are always (many) situations in which the infoset is better 
expressed as XML, and situations where that's not possible, or at least 

My axes of reflexion tend to focus more closely on finding out 
when/where binary infosets are a good or a bad idea, and when they are 
found to be a good idea what can be done given the constraints they have 
to integrate them as well as possible into the Web architecture.
