Binary-encoding of XML for communication

Hello, all.

We are trying to develop a Server/Clients network system with XML. In this
system, Clients read structured data and send them as XML data to a server.

We estimate too heavy to communicate text-based XML and to decode/encode it
to/from XML object tree. So we think it's desiable to communicate XML data
as binary serialized object tree. And it's better that the binary code is
open format.

If I remeber correctly, such a open binary XML format are discussed among a
starndard XML community. Is it true? If anyone knew anything about that,
please tell me.

Thank you in advance.
