Subject: Re:Conference Call Correction


    Unfortunately, I am with a client at a DoD EMall meeting all day Friday.  I
may be able to join the conference call for a short time depending on when we
have lunch.

    I think there are four issues that need addressed -

    1) XML in ebXML.  I challenge anyone to find where we are using XML in what
is being developed by the project teams. Not only in the TRP effort, but those
of core components, business process, and registry and repository as well. In my
opinion they are off developing (reinventing) OO/Open EDI under the guise of
XML.  Sorry folks - it won't sell.

    2) Organizational submissions.  Klaus has made it very clear that we are
individuals participating in ebXML.  My guess is no organization has "formally"
reviewed our requirements document and "voted" on an organizational submission. 
Unless specifically directed to by Klaus, I don't believe any "organizational"
submission should be treated as anything other than a submission by the
individual making it.

    3) Accomodating comments.  WE are the ebXML requirements team.  We are the
ones who should determine what the contents of our document are as it moves
forward.  Certainly we listen to the technical expertise from the various
project teams, and incorporate to the extent we don't disagree with them. 
However, in my opinion, the final decision on what is included in the
requirements document coming out of our team is ours.  The full plenary can
certainly vote to reject the document, as can the steering and executive

    4) Process.  My sense is you all should review the various submissions and
identify as a group any you feel strongly about - one way or the other.  I will
then take that guidance in incorporating comments for the next draft.
