Subject: Common Business Objects


Thank you for distributing the updated r&r document, I'm sure Mary Kay is pleased with your prompt response.

Frankly, I am stunned that it still contains references to common business objects!  We have been discussing this since May, and I thought that this had been resolved.  Apparently not.  Let me start with:

Core Components are specifically designed to meet the PT's cross industry interoperability goals of Electronic Commerce.  These requirements are driving the need for the use of context and extension methodology, combined with the core.  This maximizes our opportunity for reuse, and supports the need for concise and semantically significant content.

With us now in the delivery phase, we cannot afford to continue to argue the PT's overall approach. We did an hour presentation in Brussels, we presented jointly with the BP project team at the San Jose closing plenary, we have answered this question on numerous occasions.  What steps do we need to take to bring closure to this issue?

Thank you,

Much as I would like you to have the last word, I must ask a question.

You indicated a knowledge of the R&R that is more than I know.  I trust you
have found the documentation somewhere.

Please share.

Since only you and I seem to care much about this ;^), and we've both stated
opinions, I don't see much to be gained by continuing this dialogue.
I'm sure you'll agree with me that there's a big difference between the BP
metamodel using parts of the eCo framework, and ebXML adopting it wholesale
all of its interfaces, schemas, and implementation details.   Those are
the scope of the BP work.  They also don't fall within R&R, since R&R is
working on means to host any generic artifact, and not working on the
details of
the kinds of TP information needed for discovery.  The details of trading
partner discovery logically fall within the responsibility of the TP team,
that team has not yet even reached a consensus that trading partner
discovery is
within its scope.  In fact, the last time it was discussed the consensus was
that discovery was *not* within the team's scope.

So, there you have it.  You going to give me the last word???  Have a good
