Everyone loves standards, and everyone believes they can do it better 
than whatever already got done. Of course nobody looks round for a 
viable format before they build a new one. You really think you can do 
better than the "Binary XML" that already exists and has 15 years of 
development behind it at W3C?

Meantime the date and time subtleties are lost on most everybody, 
including W3C, leading to more and more flawed date and time formats. 
Are we having fun yet?  :-\
