Subject: RE: latest Version; Chap16 Revision 2


This is an excellent write-up that I believe very accurately reflects the
deliberations of the TP team at our face to face meeting last week.  Two
minor points:

- A couple reference are made to parties rather than partners (the agreed

- In the last diagram, I believe that one of the "same semantics" lines
should connect BP XML with BP UML, rather the UML modeling tool.  The one
between the UML and XML modeling tools is correct.
