The W3C We-Hate-XML Working Group has published a note on Efficient XML Interchange Measurements. "In particular, this draft covers measurements of the properties of "compactness" and "processing efficiency", as defined by the XBC WG. We start by describing the context in which this analysis is being made, and the position of an efficient format in the landscape of high performance XML strategies. Then we describe the measured quantities in detail and the test framework in which they were made. A short description of each format is included. Since the measurement and analysis effort is still in progress, for this first draft the raw results and preliminary findings are given elsewhere (see respectively the EXI Measurements Results Preview and the Analysis of the EXI Measurements)." No actual results are presented.
