I think the key is to NOT use something as verbose as XML...

I've begun to wonder how much of an impact the <tag></tag> delimiters have on performance, really. It's a little more verbose than JSON. But not that much. And you can use short tag names, as an option.

<CUSTID>1234567890</CUSTID>

A Flex application would have no trouble mapping an XML element like that to form elements. I know that Adobe has been promoting a compressed binary format for data interchange, which is evidently more streamlined than XML. On the other hand, it seems that you could just use HTTP compression to convert XML into compressed binary format to reduce time on the wire (transmission time).
