But, Bob, what's the impact to the SME when all of the big guys he does
business with want him to download their specific technical specifications
and deal with them individually. This doesn't take the cost out for the SME
since all of this stuff can/does/will come at them differently. The SME
doesn't have the time or knowledge or expertise to deal with this. The SME
will just throw up his hands and say the h*ll with it!

The vision and dream for ebXML was shrinkwrapped solutions for the
SME....how come this vision seems to have gone down the sewer?

I agree that this is how it will happen in a lot of cases.
It's good for the big guys if all their suppliers use the
same protocols.

But if you are a big guy, it is very feasible for you
to package up all the technical requirements for
doing businesses electronically either for download
or with a Web interface and take all the cost hurdles
off the SME suppliers altogether.  And it will be
worth it to you to do so.
