First law of XML:
  XML will grow in complexity until the transmition of a single bit of
  data requires the sum total of the internet's bandwidth to transmit,
  and needs every CPU ever made working together to parse.

Corollary 1:
  If a less efficient way to transmit data exist, all possible efforts
  must be made to find it and implement it as the new standard.

Corollary 2:
  Anyone using an efficient method of data tranfer should be cast out
  as obsolete for using such outdated technology. Anyone you employ
  with this mindset should be fired immediately.

The W3C has been cited for violations of this law and is doing
everything they can to comply ASAP, please stand by...

Apologies for the transmission of this message in the outdated ASCII,
but I only have 1.3GB of disk space free, and was unable to save the XML
version ;)
