Yes - they are sufficiently vague, aren't they  ;-)

I think that each Trading Partner must support at least one published
Business Service Interface that exists for the sole reason of accepting
CPA proposals.  Someone needs to be the first to make a message payload
that contains a proposed CPA AND a business payload that expresses that
the CPA is a proposal alpong with relevant information.

How can I take issue with a Lawyer ;-)  Okay - for the time being, 
there is a simpel way to do it, but that way will still have to answer
the same questions that the automated way should use.

1.  What CPP's did you use to create the CPA?
2.  How much time do I have to accept or refuse this before it lapses?
3.  Can I counter propose a CPA and if so,  where and how do I send it?

etc. etc.
