It isn't making its own. The ISO TC154 team working on BSR and Madras are
also involved in ebXML. The problem is that we need to structure things much
better for use in the hierarchical world of ebXML. This is the work that is
currently going into the core component analysis work. Have not fear, BSR is
the basis, but BSR cannot be used as is because it is too inflexible. BDR on
the other hand is just too damn expensive to be of use to SMEs.
