If you just take any XSD, and add a "top level" DFDL annotation including:


And as well you must provide other top-level defaults for date formats, how
nulls are represented by default and so forth. Doing this and then writing
out the data should get you a quite standard binary format for XML
transmission which ought to satisfy much of the needs of the binaryXML

I found discussion of DFDL on public-xml-binary at w3c this week, and this
notion crossed my mind that while binaryXML formats can't solve the DFDL
problem, DFDL *CAN* solve the binaryXML problem.
