I think that where some potential confusion lies is that some see this
as an attempt to utilize EDI for the future.  We need to really clarify
that we are extending the *transaction model* of EDI only and it will be
clearly expressed in XML syntax.  The key word has to be extensible.

Again, this will make it possible to participate solely within the
confines of ebXML for those wishing to abandon their EDI.

How would you suggest building a working model for the next meeting in
