Subject: Re: [ebxml-dev] Re: Addendum to Automating execution of Biz Processes(& BPSS)....

I had asked that this particular discussion thread be allowed to die, but 
since Andrez is asking for a direct response here I will offer a few brief, 
additional words, in-line.

It most certainly wasn't a tacit admission of defeat in the face of 
superior debate.  It was simply my assessment that very little that either 
of us is going to write is going to change anyone's opinion.  I have spent 
way too much unpaid time on ebXML already, and don't particularly care to 
spend additional time in such a fruitless exercise.  In addition, when I 
have extended comments to make I prefer to post them on my web site, and 
not clutter up what is intended to be a list to discuss implementation and 
development issues.

If you want to take my refusal to debate any further as victory for your 
arguments, go ahead.  It doesn't mean you're right, though.  All it means 
is that we have different opinions.  Only time will tell which one of us 
right (if either).

Thank you, but I'll leave it on the floor.
