[Papervision3D] collada vs. *.3DS file format PERFORMANCE ???

It seems like everyone here uses the collada (DAE) format for importing
their models. Collada is nice because it's a (theoretically) universal
format, but it has a lot of overhead because it is an XML format. In a
recent test, I created a car model and exported it in both formats: DAE and
3DS. The results are:
car.3DS = 64.3K
car.DAE = 311K
The 3DS format will obviously save me a lot of loading time, but does the
3DS format perform any better once it has been imported? I have noticed that
most of the sample SWFs (in both PV3D and Away3D) that import high-poly
models use the 3DS format instead of the DAE. Has anyone run a performance
test? If not, maybe I will do it.
