Subject: Re: Trading Partner or Party - What's in a name

Names and conventions

In response to the issues of what to call a "party" or "trading
Partner", please wait until the TA glossary is published then make
formal comments to our list serve.  There are instances where we have
wasted valuable time changing names, changing, back, then changing a
third time to appease grammar mongers.  I realize this process will be
vital once the final specifications are done but for the time being, we
all know what we are semantically referring to.  In the future,  these
issues must be reached by consensus.

TA has a huge backlog of technical issues to concentrate on.
