Subject: RE: revised requirements


I've made some comments in the attached draft using revision marks. There is
one general issue that I raise that I would like to repeat here ...

Do we want to restrict the TP groups work to just business relationships.
Electronic documents can be sent between two parties when there is no
"business" relationship. Particularly, the functions in the ebXML Messaging
Services spec, e.g. reliable messaging, equally apply to business and
non-business situations. If we wish to restrict our usage to ONLY business
relationships then using the term Trading Partner is fine. If we don't then
we should replace the tern "Trading Partner" as used in Trading Partner
Agreement and elseweher by something more neutral such as "Party" (see
definitions below).

We haven't properly discussed this as an issue but, IMO, we should. If we
can't quickly come to a consensus, I think a vote is a good idea as then the
issue will be resolved once and for all.

Subject: revised requirements

Here is the revised requirements document.  It benefits from the few
comments I have received plus other improvements.

In the next day or so, we will be asked for our input to the ebXML
requirements.  It would be helpful if people could review the attached and
provide comments very soon.
