The testing results I've seen for EXI indicate that in many circumstances it is quite a bit better than zlib or tls compression. In addition to better b/w utilization use of exi within the xmpp router could potentially lead to dramatically improved scalability as binary xml is far more efficient to process.
Interesting note on what I was trying to get at with DIME.
Values typed as Binary are represented as a length-prefixed sequence of
octets representing the binary content. The length is represented as an
Unsigned Integer (see 7.1.6 Unsigned Integer)."
Suddenly it all becomes plausible. No need for Base64.
