Then stop there! I absolutely agree. ebXML should keep things very simple and easy to implement. That is the strength of XML, (if not necessarily of the related specs that have come from the W3C). XML itself was intended (in the words of Tim Bray at XTech2000 last week) to "come in fast and under the radar, and be on target before anyone knew about it". The world needs ebXML to come in "fast and under the radar", not to sail majestically into the harbor with all flags flying and all bells and whistles sounding.
