TAG closes ISSUE-30: Standardize a "binary XML" format?

On its teleconference of 14 January 2010, the TAG reached a decision [1] 
to close its ISSUE-30 [2], which has the title "Standardize a "binary XML" 
format?".   The issue was raised in response to a note sent by Robin 
Berjon in 2002 (!!) [3] in which he stated:

"while reading the webarch WD I came accross a point that surprised me 
slightly in section 3.3 (http://www.w3.org/TR/webarch/#formats-ideas). 
Point 8 mentions "Effect of Mobile on architecture - size, complexity, 
memory constraints. Binary infosets, storage efficiency."

"Given that binary infosets (currently, binary PSVIs[1]) is what I work on 
daily and that I am currently investigating ways in which they could fit 
naturally into the web (content-coding registration for instance), I would 
be very interested in knowing what -- if anything at this point -- the TAG 
thinks of them and of how they could best fit in."

As part of the process of closing an issue, the TAG customarily alerts 
parties whom we think may be interested in our decision.  If anyone has 
concerns regarding our decision to close the issue, and especially if 
there are requests to reopen it, please direct them to www-tag@w3.org.  We 
very much appreciate the time that everyone in the EXI community has spent 
working with the TAG, and we wish you the best as you proceed toward 
publishing a Recommendation.
