Subject: Re: [regrep] Final draft recommendations for CC's and Registry -UML/UMM Profile for CCTS


Sure - XMI probably is the best choice we have for model a interchange 
format, but it is a lot larger than a comparable binary file would be 
for storing persistent information about the same model.  If you used 
XMI exclusively, it would take up a lot more space on your users 
machines and take a lot longer to parse, load.

I think most of the UML tool vendors have it right -> they use binary 
files and allow the users the chance to build and export XMI renditions.
