Yes - this is exactly what I was saying.  ebXML must be independent of
EDI yet still carry the <buzzwords>semantic richness</buzzwords> of
EDI.  At the same time,  there MUST be a way to protect the investments
companies have in their EDI systems.  This can be accomplished by using
a Bizcode type linking mechanism combined with a repository access.

There is bound to be very strong feelings on both sides of the fence -
those who want to completely abolish any reference to EDI and those who
want to retool OO-EDI as an XML-syntax.  I am glad that I do not have
the task of selling the final solution to all *chuckle*
