Subject: RE: ebXML Question re: Comments by Organizations

I don't believe that Kyle's proposal is workable...there is simply no
realistic nor reliable way to ascertain the number of individuals within an
organization that one should count. How would one count X12, for example?
This path is a huge pit of quicksand.
