Interesting, I didn't know that. The "binary wrapper"... it is used to make parsing faster, isn't it? I can imagine parsing an XML files to be quite CPU intensive and slow. Much easier to use binary code to "describe" the layout, kinda like offering the device pre-processed content to make things faster. At least this is how I thought LRF to work.
