Subject: RE: DRAF RE: How to Create an ebXML Order (EDI 850 transaction set)

Smaller businesses are waiting for data elements and business docs to 
become available in the ebXML registry.  Many of us were thrilled when 
the CBL vocabulary emerged, and less-than-thrilled at the speed of ebXML
in comparison.  

Reading the latest http://www.edifact-wg.org/EWGX12.htm and 
http://www.ecp.nl/tens/EWG/, it is my personal impression that in the 
immediate future, there is not going to be a common horizontal 
vocabulary suitable for SMEs coming from EWG's work.  I apologize
if this is incorrect and I do not mean to diminish EWGs work in any

I'm glad Jon Bosak and others on the UBL project (like Duane Nickull) 
are working on a set of data elements and business documents.  Any 
coherent, common vocabulary will be quite attractive compared to 
today's dozens of little vocabularies such as the various billing and
payments formats, etc.  I do expect UBL to be the first to market, and
that it will probably gather a very large adoption within 12-24 months.
