Actually it is not since they both have now a ZIP file format with the 
resources included in their native format. They are no longer 

And what exactly do you have in mind? base64-Encoders exist and don't 
need to be provided by Cocoon. Anything for transforming them makes no

xinclude, etc.) not only text and XML, but also binary stuff which gets 
base64-encoded. Maybe there was no need for it up to now.
