Subject: RE: ebXML Core Components Submission Version 1.01

Todd, sorry for the delay in responding to your question. If you require
some vocabulary which has already been defined then you will either agree
with the definition and therefore be happy to use the term. Or your context
will mean that you have another definition, a synonym which you can register
as meaningful within your specific business context.
Kind regards

		Thanks James!  Eagerly read those attachments...

		The word "account" has a number of meanings in various
		contexts. The Initial Core Components Catalogue Ver 1.01
(Appendix A).pdf
		contains the following definition for  000010,

		   "A service through a bank or other organisation through
which funds
		   are held on behalf of a client or goods or services are
supplied on
		   credit." "Can also be used for non-monetary accounts such
as a point

		There are eleven rows in this account.* aggregate, which
seem somewhat
		specific to banking.  Here are two, broad usages of the word

		1.  External accounts.  "We got the Pepsi account but we
lost the
		Coke account..."   e.g.
		  * Asset accounts such as bank accounts, accounts
receivable accounts,
		      all kinds of financial assets and receivables, and
		  * Liability accounts, payable accounts, loans/bonds/notes
etc. payable...

		The number of these mutual external "accounts" between
businesses outside
		of banking is hundreds of times larger than the number of
bank accounts.

		2. a general "accounting" account, which is any of an
extremely large
		variety of classification schemes for transactions,
		etc.  i.e., an internal account.  Income accounts, equity
		property and equipment accounts, budgeting, allocation, WIP,
all kinds
		of accounts and subaccounts and rollup accounts... Here,
read this.

		The ebXML Finance domain website has similar focus on

		I guess accountants should do our jobs to model our own
		What happens if we need some vocabulary words that are
		used exactly in some other domain?
