I think the need/want for in band binary data is the key to this
argument.  If you don't want in band binary data, obviously you don't
want any binary information in the protocol.  Is that potentially why a
binary frameing protocol doesn't sit well with you?  Or, would it still
sit bad if the protocol had in band binary?
