Yes, parsing REBOL block data is much simpler, but... what do I do if
I want to communicate with a _different_ system? If these were two
REBOL systems that I was dealing with, things would have been
different. But the REBOL block data format is _not_ a standard; XML

Well I don't think I understand your question correctly. Anyway, if
you're specifically referring to _DOM_ (as opposed to SAX), it's just
a matter of preference.
