Subject: Re: ebXML PoC -- feedback to working groups

- On the other email concerning optionality: True optionality can reduce
interoperability. But beware that
if it is *truely* optional (not just per DTD rules) and then made
mandatory, garbage may have to be loaded
to satisfy.....
- Section 7.2.2 Content Length
The explanation is good on the definition of the length, but we either
should drop the one-line example
following it or actually put in an example where a small length can be
easily understood.
- I generally think we need another pass through the header DTD. I would
suggest that we align less to
a structure of human-readability and more to a flat structure without
artificial containment (remove
TPAInfo, MessageData tags for example and put the subtags directly under
Header). Fundamentally,
I favor for purposes of infrastructure the XML camp thinking of *data* not
*documents* (documents here
indicating considerations leaning toward human readability).
- Make Manifest optional. I'm not in favor of required-empty-tags.
