 You should take a serious look at the ongoing work on ASN.1/XML mapping
that is available for instance at http://asn1.elibel.tm.fr/xml/
ASN.1 supports the use of very efficient binary encoding while having a
powerful schema language to describe your data.
The next results from the ASN.1 people will allow the transport of XML
through the translation of XML schemas to ASN.1 modules.
