i grant that you can't read the data over the wire, but that's true of
any binary protocol or encoded text packet, and the world's moved
along fine using plenty of those. in this specific case, you can use
firebug to look at the decoded data, right?
size of data only matters when it's a problem. encoding the data has
yet to be proven to be a real problem for us with production-like
data. if/when it has, we can consider alternatives. remember that in
production we're gzipping the entire feed, so the reality of the extra
20% is less.
