Subject: Re: issue resolution updates

Since the Specification Schema no longer has a DocumentModel, I propose to
remove all associated references to the analysis and structure of
BusinessDocuments from the Specification Schema, and leave that up to CC
documents as agreed in Tokyo. I think we should try to make the Specification
Schema shorter, not longer.

>Resolution of issues, 4/17/2001
>In metamodel meeting today we decided on the following issues:
>1. We will rename DocumentType to BusinessDocument (partially resolved
>102/103/114) 2. We will (re-)introduce the DocumentEnvelope, but as an
>optional layer: A document flow can have a single BusinessDocument, or a
>DocumentEnvelope. Who will make a proposal for this? (Part of issue 120)
>3. We will not introduce the explicit notion of structured and unstructured
>documents. All primary documents (element BusinessDocument) are expected to
>XML, defined in a Schema (or DTD), even if all they are is a wrapper around
>some "unstructured" segment and/or the holder of a set of attachments. 4.
>will rename Schema to DocumentSpecification (related to issues 102/103/114)
>We will leave cardinality between the renamed entities
>and BusinessDocument as one-to-many. This means that a new business
>transaction must be defined for each flavor of its document exchange. For
>example CreatePurchaseOrder_OAG using OAG documents, and
>CreatePurchaseOrder_X12 using X12, etc. etc. The group feels this is the
>safe thing to do. Any attempt to allow generic transactions with
>document choice is too ambitious (whimps!). 6. We leave logicalModel as the
>only linkage to the CC context model. So in the renamed
>element "location" points to where the actual content model of the
>BusinessDocument is, and "logicalModel" points to where the CC context
>for the BusinessDocument is. If the latter is blank, the BusinessDocument
>assumed to not have been created using CC context model. 7. There was no

>Transaction to be its own BinaryCollaboration, instead of requiring a
>BinaryCollaboration. Proposal dropped (whimps!).
