Gee, thanks, Duane.  Nothing like a bit of throwing down the gauntlet, eh?

All I can promise you is that I will consider your suggestion.  Those with

a long enough memory will recall that I did actively solicit comments from

various ebXML TC leads during the posting of the original series, 
particularly after the "Market Impact" article was posted.  So few 
responded that I have doubts about the effort being worthwhile a second 
time.  At this point I'm more inclined to write the update based on the 
specs and other publicly available materials and let the chips fall where 
they may.  For rebuttals and corrections this listserv has worked quite 
well, but I could also offer links on my pages for them.  At any rate,
think about it.
