I was under the impression that YAML had some sort of standard binary
encoding format, sort of like JSON and BSON [1], but this doesn't
appear to be the case. Did you have something specific in mind here,
or did you mean having optimization remarks optionally emit a
different, non-human-readable format? If so, MessagePack [2] or
protocol buffers [3] appear to be widely used.
