Interesting!

It seems also that some discovered that sending those XML messages on the line 
take some bandwidth and processing power for binding (oops what a surprise) 
so there is a proposal for "Fast Web Services" which in practice seems to be 
an ASN.1 representation of XML Schema.
Since Erlang has an ASN1 encoder/decoder this might be something to look 
closer at.
