can never be bijective. I don't think it is EbXML's goal
(at least not in a first phase) to provide design rules to convert DTD into



Maybe I'm looking through the binoculars the other way around?!

I'd like to think UML import filters can read plain vanilla DTD's as a base
and default all the modelling stuff to 'not now, later', which is I
what UML is currently capable of doing (as previously asserted by Charles

Notice that the responsiblity lies with UML, the modelling tool, to be able
to interact with data repository formats, and thus ebXML need not
