This is a good point regarding your scenario, however in Signature I think 
we realized that once something has gone off to be processed by other 
unknowns, it's very difficult to  communicate information outside the 
Informat Set (like a nuances of a particular serialization.) If you want 
human readability, the application could do another transform that removed 
redundancy and such...?
