Re: [ebxml-dev] P2P for e-business - applications?

Thanks Andrew,

I'd personally always favoured the P2P model primarily
but seen the hub model or variants as a fallback. Maybe
we're stuck with it for the near future then on any large
scale in terms of national infrastructures. Still I think it
would be nice if national governments sought to provide
for or nurture P2P for their private sectors in the longer
terms. Maybe it just needs some governmental backing
to succeed here and there. I codeveloped the UBL UBP
with P2P really in mind due to this hope so I do hope
it is just a matter of time.

Grateful for any other comments or bits of info still.

Apologies for cross-posting by the way. Just couldn't
decide which list it most related to.

All the best

Stephen Green
