Some rebuttals..

I completely agree.  It should be pointed out that if I, as a user of 
ebXML, do not want to use the stock set of core components,  I could 
build and use my own.  There are plenty of documents to guide me through 
this endevour (CC Discovery and Analysis, UMM et al.)

No - we got to drink plenty of cold beer and see a hockey game.  This is 
the dream life of all Candaians ;-)  Seriously, the work done to date is 
relied upon by both UBL and UN/CEFACT CC teams.

I have no opinion on this as I never saw the proposal.  Maybe those who 
submitted the proposal could shed some light on this?  Did Jon submit it?

Agreed.  It is too early to tell for sure the degree of overlap or if 
the final work of both will even have any overlap.
