Subject: AW: ebXML - core components glossary of terms and acronyms

Dear all, 

As acronyms always create the danger of misunderstandings I fully support
the idea of creating an acronyms directory. The approach as mentioned in
Gordon's e-mail seems workable:

	In retrospect my thinking is we should 

*	always spell out acronyms- at least the first time they are used
*	if we use a new or uncommon term then take a line to state what the
term means

There should be some "agency within ebXML to cover this issue.

As initial idea: We should create a database indicating 
1.	the term, acronym etc, 
2.	a description, explanation, full text transformation
3.	the context (area, business, ...)

Maybe this soundness familiar to some of you.

	I suggested we needed Glossary & Acronyms before 
	- everyone thought it a good idea -
	- then came a long discussion on :
	 what was included;what should be left out;

*	whose list we use; 
*	should we reference an existing glossary 
*	 then whose
*	etc 

	In retrospect my thinking is we should 

*	always spell out acronyms- at least the first time they are used
*	if we use a new or uncommon term then take a line to state what the
term means
