And if one does not like GML, one can select for example GeoJson instead

http://188.64.1.61/cgi-bin/tinyows?service=wfs&version=1.1.0&request=getfeature&typename=osm_polygon&maxfeatures=2000&outputformat=application/json

and with Mapserver v. 6.0 all vector formats supported by ogr for writing
are supported also as WFS outputformats. They are marked as Creation=Yes
on the list http://gdal.org/ogr/ogr_formats.html. I suppose many would be
attracted by KML. It's a pity that OSM-XML is missing from this list even
a read-only.
