To make things simpler, you actually have also to consider diverse national regulations handling the same industry worldwide. My next questions to all of you:

Can you give me a hint/link towards specs/definitions for the context mechanism? A dummy-guide, maybe? Or just a simple explanation how it is supposed to work in practice?

Specifically, to rise the policy discussion once again - who is the likeliest operator for such repository - service providing businesses, state, third parties such as trade facilitation units/bodies, or all of them jointly? Does such practice exist, to your knowledge? Where (give URL)? Are there already existent ebXML compliant industrial repositories known to you, and in which countries?
And, more to the point, how is the business person in your example supposed to notify the repository operators that there is a gap and (s)he has a proposal to fill it wit such and such component?
