The curl man page is indeed pretty confusing wrt. what exactly --data does. 
But it does say this: "-d/--data is the same as --data-ascii." and then later
for --data-binary "Data is posted in a similar manner as --data-ascii does,
except that newlines are preserved and conversions are never done.".  I don't
think it's actually a matter of binary vs text, but rather posting as-is or
with some conversions.

Not sure what conversions they mean other than something related to newlines,
but I have verified locally with wireshark is that --data-binary POSTs files
as-is as I want it to (and like the validator does), and --data on the other
hand at least discards newlines, probably also leading whitespace (which would
mean problems with line and column numbers in results if validator did that).
