Subject: Re: English Language Tags

Title: Re: English Language Tags
I really can't spare the energy to discuss this subject in more detail. My concluding remark below speaks to the need for an integrated approach to the many issues being addressed by ebXML. This is only to say that I feel that CoreTalk's opinion on the tag issue will be taken out of context if I continue down this particular discussion at this time.

JM: The mechanisms envisioned by XML Namespaces (W3C Technical Recommendation #2) and XML Schema certainly seem adequate -- perhaps not perfectly, but certainly "good enough" -- what's broken about it that UIDs would solve?

SK: This ebXML challenge remains to bolt all these technologies together. UIDs are just one small aspect of a much greater problem. The winning solution needs to integrate many ideas together. So this is not so much an issue of what specific problems would UIDs solve.
