I don't understand how there can be a debate if the architecture
is the driving document. This common sense. Doing it the other way
demotes the architecture to an executive summary. I know, that is
how some organization do it, but that does not make it right. The

I don't plan to have a discussion on this topic during the
upcoming ebXML meeting. We got more important issues to address
than wasting time with fundamental principles that are the
cornerstone of design.
