Subject: RE: To get things started....

Todd Boyle "urge[s] the EWG to accord a high priority to publishing a
common horizontal set of components at an early date.  This should
include all party, product, location, contact and other aggregates
necessary for the 30 million small and medium businesses (SMB's) in the
US to begin automating their bookkeeping."  Todd explains that "[the]
ongoing cost of printing and mailing paper checks, and altogether
unreconciled bookkeeping mess are a national disgrace, running well
above $100 billion/year."

Todd should share with Core Components his idea (model) of what these
"party, product, location, contact and other aggregates" look like.  It
would be preferable that he not refer us to OAG, xCBL, Intuit and qbXML
to find out for ourselves.  It is not necessary (nor desirable) to
provide UML diagrams - he should just spell it out completely in English
or manually drawn diagrams, or even -  Lord forbid - spreadsheets!  I
could provide a model of these aggregates, but they would probably look
a lot like EDIFACT - so I implore Todd to come up with his own.  I will
not argue about wherever Todd came up with that $100 billion/year
