i think you sort of misunderstood that particular proposal:  he didn't want
to make elinks use some opaque binary format.  he wanted some text
representations for users to choose from to be transformed to a common
binary format making elinks independant from that particular
representation.  this doesn't even rule out the "binary" form to be text,
the core of the proposal is the common format.

hope i got it right :)
