Subject: RE: One definition of "syntax-neutral"


I was simply trying to summarize what I had read on the list serv regarding
UML. Personally, I feel that at a minimum we will need to add documentation
describing use and intent regarding our class descriptions. 

My understanding is that we will have on-going work around the official
ebXML modelling language. There has not either been agreement on which
object model to use, and we shgould probably take a close look at this
aspect of the problem. Thoughts?

Do you know which "object model" will be used?

I guess you are implying class-based "object model". I would suggest that we
don't neglect the possibility of using XML in a prototype-based fashion.
