Subject: RE: [ebxml-dev] ebXML core components derivation by restriction

Ron -  I agree with you that there needs to be a global non-profit
organisation "The UDEF tree structures need to be managed by a 
global non-profit"

The key issue is that the rest of the world cannot afford for "the 
global non-profit organisation" to be US based.

The recent deceitful behaviour by the US with the Australia-USA Free 
Trade Agreement [Aus-USA-FTA] has shown that the US intentions
are about electronic imperialism and the US uses Standards
to generate revenue for US companies and US companies only

The deceitful behaviour is that:

1	the US negotiated a Treaty while not disclosing in the treaty 
	with a major ally (Australia) that the US had passed legislation 
	that proved the US was implementing non-ISO standards so
	that US companies could generate income from acting as 
	Agents for"Document re-formating and re-routing"

2	The US is using the Fear Factor of "Defence against Terrorism"
	to co-erce allies into signing these agreements

3	while at the same time aiding and assisting the Zionist 
	Government to provoke Terrorism


In 1991 I spent 3 months with the European Aerospace Association
[AECMA] discussing how to facilitate the exchange of information
between stake-holders in the Eurofighter Collaboration

These meetings were supported by the Australian Trade
Commission with discussions on CALS

15 years down the track the US is legislating for the US ANSI-X12
Standards while the rest of the world moves towards ISO Standards
which are supposedly supported by the US.

Ron - a large number of people around the world are donating a lot
of time, effort and resources while the US is being very deceitful.


I look forward to a simple explanation as to why:

1	the US is legislating for ANSI-X12 Standards while 

2	participating on ISO Standard committees like UN/EDIFACT and

3	negotiating Free Trade Agreements that do not reveal what 
	standards will be used in Electronic Commerce

during our mail-conversation we had one. The group is building up its procedures, 
by assessing the first (eight?) submissions from industry groups. As all this stuff 
is new to everybody we must find the best way by just doing it. After next week 
we'll have a full week F2F. We envisage it is ongoing work and we hope by 
finetuning the procedures and learning from people like you who have experience 
in ontology-engineering in the future to automize (or at least do an automatical 
pre-assessment of) most of the work. Both the draft procedures and the first draft 
list of CC's have been published in the UN/CEFACT community. Please contact 
Alan Stitzer (Alan.Stitzer@marsh.com) who is leading the project.</Fred>

TGB17 intend to consult neutral third party subject matter experts in the health 
and medical field who are also knowledgeable of the total current content in the 
CCs and BIEs library and therefore will assure all users that there is no conflict?

support of automation (software and an underlying database) and a solid 
ontology and a commitment from neutral third party subject matter experts in 
order to populate the library with artifacts that do not conflict with each other. I 
also believe that the library needs to have a structured ID (like a Dewey Decimal 
ID) or the library will soon become useless due to its size. 
> The UDEF is an approach that could satisfy all of the above requirements - an 
ontology that is relatively simple to understand and can be easily mapped to 
CCTS, software (that invokes a workflow that ties in to subject matter experts 
and provides an initial screening for conflicts) and a database that helps prevent 
semantic collisions within the ontology, and a built-in structured ID that provides 
an indexing mechanism that computers can use across the globe. The ID uses a 
syntax very similar to an IP address (number.number.number) that computers 
can handle quite readily and that can leverage DNS technology to convert the ID 
to a name or vice versa.
> The UDEF tree structures need to be managed by a global non-profit. At this 
point in time, the global non-profit that would take responsibility for managing the 
UDEF tree structures has not been selected. Is TGB17 possibly interested in 
becoming that global non-profit? If so, I will share the specification that was 
developed by the aerospace industry that details the requirements that the global 
non-profit must do in order to allow the "library" (global registry) to succeed.
