Subject:  Re: agenda issues for TechArch ConfCall

Perhaps a couple of points for discussion on the call:

I was under the impression that a goal of the ebxml work was to target
SMEs, but I
didn't see that explicitly referenced in the material duane sent out.
Should it be?

Maybe we should review the latest (v4?) requirements document, understand
has been agreed upon, and map statements/points over to the architectural
material already
generated. It may not have to be explicit, but generally this may be a good
way to proceed
review of all we have...........

Also, I'm unclear as to why there should be two APIs, one for machines and
one for
humans. It seems to me that there should only be one API. If somebody wants
write a human gui for the API, they are welcome to do it, but its only one

The system represented in the slides seems to me to require a large
infrastructure on the part of those using it to do all of this template
This seems to me to be inimical to the goal of targeting it for SMEs.

>From the material, it seems like there is only one reg-rep. This seems to
me to be
impractical because it would have to be one big honking reg-rep.

I agree. No singel honking RegRep. In fact, Scott N. and discussed this
in Orlando, and both believe it should be distributed (as I insisted on one
of those slides....). My view is a federation of repositories world-wide
that can be traversed.

 Rather it would
seem to me that there should be multiple reg-reps each of which is
specialized on
grouping similar things. So, for example, if you were interested in
services, you would look into a finance reg-rep to find business that offer
financial services. If you want shoes, that would be in a different
reg-rep. That's
not to say that one reg-rep doesn't utilize another one. So, for example,
let say
you've decided you want to buy shoes from somebody, you might then use the
reg-rep to find mutually satisfactory financial services for you to
conclude the
transaction. Its up to each business to register themselves and their
services in
the appropriate repository. So any business that offers OFX payment
services would
register themselves in the finance reg-rep. If both parties to the shoe
can use OFX, then they can use the finance reg-rep to confirm it. This
also reduced the required technical infrastructure require by the business
since it
moves the bulk of the templates to the reg-reps where the businesses
themselves. Consequently, its much more palatable to the SMEs who do not
have the
resources to do all of that themselves.
