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.

"7.1.1 Binary

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.
