It doesn't make multicast structures unnecessary. Using multicast structures you can avoid to generate/serialize/parse quite some XML stanzas. So you have less volume to compress and at the other side it's less XML to parse. Sure the multicast handling takes some CPU too but that's minimal compared to general purpose compression.
