My book discusses the advantages of TLV over text-based encodings. The latter typically require more space and processing time. Readability is touted as an advantage of text, but it's often as you say.

Text's advantage is in interoperability between big and little endian systems. If that's a requirement, TLV is a non-starter unless all the fields are the same length. A protocol standard has to consider this, but a proprietary system can standardize on one endianism and use TLV more freely, although it still has to maintain protocol backward compatibility unless it's OK to shut down the entire network during an upgrade.
