Subject: RE: Questions from Brussels

In your comment below, what about scenarios in which the user DOES want to
search upon a particular schema at the tag level? I see this as very
valuable, and powerful. Also, it seems one of the primary uses of common
business elements is to allow cross schema searches (as well as
interoperability). Why would it be too cumbersome?

<SNIP>The global search mechanism is still undefined. How will such a global
search work? How will users find particular schemas to search upon? How will
the perform common core searches?</SNIP>

This is the wrong approach to a search.  You don;t (and won't )  always know
what the schemas are you want to search through.  Also, in the case where
you want to search through more than one schema,  this is a cumbersome and
heavyweight solution for XML Searching.

The correct way is to provide a mechanism for relating the contexts to the
search keys and provide the user with that interface.  GoXML  can do that.
It is easy to set a rule which defines the user interface becuase it is
decoupled from the system architecture.  Do not even consider the other
