Discussion points:

XML is too verbose.
JSON is better but clear text and still slow.

Is it possible to use a protocol like MessagePack between the client (ext-js) and server?
Other posibilities: ProtocolBuffers,Avro,Thift ...

Advantages: - Faster (more than 4x)
- Secure
- reducing load on both client and server.

This is not currently supported, sounds like a neat ux

Debugging?

I don't see a problem for debugging. You only need the right tools.
Secure communication is a must for future websites. Humans don't need to read
server to server information.
