Yep. bus as it is "Standard" some need to ....

Thus IMHO the way to go is to have the basic XML component work on 
linked lists with binary data in memory and only when loading/saving use 
an ASCII representation.

(in fact, we did a "linked component list" handler / converter for HTML 
some years ago, same of course could be modified to use XML, as same is 
even more strictly defined than HTML. The unit is based in 
TComponentList and defines several components for the different tag 
types used).
