Subject: Re: comment on TA specification

i agree with marty, the issue of what is (or is not) an "organisation/company" is too
complex and un-necessarily restrictive.

this highlights the need to clarify the use of the term "trading partner" (or 'trading
party' if you prefer).

is it possible that a TP (whatever that stands for!) have a single CPP (and potentially
many CPAs).  Maybe each CPP defines what the TP is???

the current glossary leaves this open.  might i suggest that this is almost self-defining.

"A trading partner (or 'trading party' if you prefer) performs one role in a Collaboration
Protocol Profile."

For example, if  K-Mart have a division that deals with purchasing goods from SE Asia and
this group have a defined CPP for contract suppliers and other for ad-hoc purchasing, then
there would be  two  TPs.  One for K-Mart/SE Asia/contract and another for K-Mart/SE

- is that the way the TP team is thinking?
