The following are the changes:
After 12/21/00 Meeting (Revision 0.82)
1.	Removed "retry Count"
2.	Added abstract terminal state
3.	Added sync state to model and DTD
4.	Timing and security  should only apply to business transaction
5.	Change Document Transition Vehicle to Business Signal
6.	Fix document/signal/status cardinality

Item to do - Add document model, need input from JJ on CC model.

> Karsten to check with RosettaNet architects for their opinion.
> The 5 'functionalities' are:
> 1. be able to specify a business transaction outside the scope of a
> collaboration 2. be able to state terms and conditions (i.e. REA?)
> directly
> against a BT 3. BT is an atomic unit of execution (in business terms)
> 4. Specification must support Core Process team
> 5. Specification must support PIPS
> Again we strongly disagree that you must have transitions on requesting
> activity to achieve this, there is always 1 and only one requesting
> activity
> for a transaction, and it is always the first step in the transaction,
> therefore all guards on the transaction are implicitly guards on the
> requesting activity.
> But, I just realized what Jim's comments mean, and I agree that we need

> level. 
> On the .doc spec document, Karsten has sent out one set of edits. Karsten

> Jim  will tag team to complete this by tomorrow.
> For tomorrow's meeting:
> Final Agreement on guards on transaction vs. transaction use
> Final Agreement on list of control parameters and their placement in
> classes and in DTD.
> Same call in info:
