Subject: RE: re "bizcodes"
Message text written by "Nieman, Scott" > David, if you think the URN is insufficient, we probably could use a pros/ cons analysis between Bizcodes and URNs (ideally in a table format). I want to keep an open mind - yet I do see from the IEFT site,there has been a lot of work going on regarding unique identification. Terry, I believe we were discussing rfc 2611 and the syntax 2141. It was not a very detailed dicussion and perhaps we could have done a better job documenting this. I want to nail this down sooner than later. This is critical. Scott <<<<<<<<<<<< OK Scott - I'm definately on this. Terry and I discussed URN v Bizcode some time back - so I'll revisit my mails on that. As you note there is both functional overlap and functional divergence. As I noted to Bob yesterday - I'm now working on some actual XML for the Bizcode mechanism - so I'll head there first in lieu of the feature set x-ref. That should then allow us to exactly review the alignment needed to tie the URN and Bizcode together. I also looked at the Standford RDF stuff just now and there's tie in there too, where the RDF can also reference the Bizcode. Enough said - I'll post something soonest. Probably early next week now as I'm in Vanocuver next couple of days, then its the Mermorial Day break... BTW - Duane noted this came up on the Tech Arch conference call today - so they are also looking at this same issue set. Maybe I'll just cancel sleep for next few days! Thanks, DW.
