Subject: RE: What do people really expect from ebXML? - Is CC really a set ofLegos?
Betty Harvey bemoaned the demise of the IETF DTD VCard specification, since having a standard for personal information would keep you from having to fill in the same damn information over and over again on web forms. Though VCard smacks of B2C, it does have some carryover into ebXML I suppose, and I just wanted to remind Betty of the W3C's Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P), at http://www.w3.org/P3P/, which looks like a successor to VCard. I previously brought P3P to our attention last month, at http://lists.ebxml.org/archives/ebxml-core/200103/msg00099.html, to show that its Section 188.8.131.52 (Postal) describes a simple structure for postal mailing addresses - for consideration in modeling ebXML's own Address core component. Of course, Mike Conroy also showed other examples from ERP file layouts giving simple address structures. I wanna know what sort of "top-down" analysis starting with the business model gave us the "postal address.details" aggregate shown in Initial CC Structure v1-03.xls. Anybody?? William J.
