Subject: Re: Brave new world, OR accumulating statistics on component usage

Todd Boyle has proposed that the ebXML Core workgroup "should consider
mechanisms that would accumulate statistics of frequency with which data
elements are used."   This would bring the free market into play and
determine the winning core components, providing "a self-healing,
self-guided architecture."

Dear Todd:

"Any polling mechanism [that] would depend on some convention for
voluntary reporting" will probably fail: people are lazy.  This is not
at all like IRS-imposed "voluntary" tax reporting.

Instead, since all schemas will be available in publicly accessible
repositories, why not just periodically scan them to see which
components they use, and with what frequency? Y'know - kind of like an
XML search engine.  Why don't you suggest this to the Registry and
Repository Group?
