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


Having spent the better part of the past 15 years involved with ASC X12 or ebXML, I find your allegations so outrageous that they border on an insult. The proceedings of the groups that prepared these standards are open and transparent, and nothing in which I was involved over this time comes even close to what you are discussing. 

Whatever issues you may have with the recent U.S.-Australia trade agreement, let me suggest you take them up with the authorities in the agencies that negotiated or ratified the treaty, and leave them off this list.
