Subject: RE: ebXML Project Scheduling Aid


I wasn't advocating nor discouraging a V2 of any spec. Rather, since at
least one of the project teams that I'm working with has indicated this as
one of their goals, I wanted to see if there would be sufficient time in the
review cycles to achieve that objective.

I don't see what value would be achieved by creating a version 2 of any
specification in the absence of real implementation experience -- and not by
research or exploratory development folks, but by people building products.
I don't believe that there will be any such experience with the V1 specs for
at least a few months after it comes out.  It would be counterproductive to
confuse potential implementors by publishing a V2 spec before anyone has
done anything substantial with V1/

It might be useful to ground this discussion with some input from Sun, IBM,
Netfish, and other companies that are focusing more on the products of ebxml
rather than the process by which they is being created.
