Basically, better support for binary formats which includes, but not limited
1) functions for converting to and from various datatypes
2) reducing the need to convert to and from network byte order
3) better documentation

My suggestion on using ASN.1 was merely a naive suggestion on how in can be
implemented properly without breaking (future) compatibility because that
seems to be the main problem which prevents the use of binary formats.

Um - speaking as a user, not a developer, I don't actually see a
description of what problem(s) you are suggesting be solved. Are you
saying there should be better documentation, or a new format?
