Both dvi and pk files are extremely compact binary representations - but correct encoders and decoders for them are plentiful.

DER is unintelligble and incomprehensible.  There is, however, an open 
source complier for ASN.1

Does it not produce correct encoders and decoders for DER?  (I have 
never used it)
