Yes, but that is a consequence of the CPA/TPA approach. Hopefully, people being rather lazy by nature, there will be a tendency for users to take an existing "solution" rather than create their own, but the ebXML model seems to do little to encourage this. The CEN/ISSS project group on Defining and Managing Semantics and Datatypes, at their meeting on Tuesday, expressed strong concerns in this area, and expressed a wish that precanned sets of business processes be made easily available to SMEs as part of off-the-shelf office suites.
