Subject: Re: Schema & BP Spec: Items for today's BP/CC meeting

The problem with delivering only a W3C schema is that it isn't
approved yet.  Tools available for working with schemas
are limited.  If ebXML is a standards body, it can't deliver
only a schema when schema is standard.  Also, there are 2 other
schema specifications being worked on by 2 other standards
organizations, TREX by OASIS and RELAX through ISO.  

I think it would be wiser to deliver a DTD as the official
deliverable and a schema as an 'added value'.
