The idea is still great though. If it's not one binary XML format then 
it is another.

The thing about EXI is that it is pre-parsed, in a sense: the parser has 
to do very little work to get at the XML data itself. EXI is not only 
designed to be small, but fast. And it also fits in neatly with 
main-stream compression algorithms. May I say again: it is fast to parse.

So on the point of adoption, it is a W3 spec, I'm sure there will be a 
following pretty soon?
