Subject: RE: latest Version; Chap16 Revision 2


Sorry. I have to disagree. What the world doesn't need is one standard for
messaging eCommerce and another one for everything else. If you look at what
TRP has actually done then, IMO, it can equally apply to both. Secondly have
you actually read the original email thread on this topic. Please do if you
haven't and then respond on a more informed basis.

Secondly, if you go back to the original requirements work done for TRP last
January/February, the term used was Party NOT Partner - why change it unless
there is a VERY GOOD reason? 

Partner only really came along when IBM proposed use of their tpaML? So
which should word should we use - the TRP definition or the IBM tpaML
definition? If there are two genuine alternative how do you decide - argue
it on the list (which is time consuming) or does some other part of ebXML
make the decision - Klaus can you rule on the process?. What I am after is a
single definition for a single "thing" - not two.

Message text written by "Burdett, David"
>The reason was that, in TRP, "party" rather than "partner" or "trading
partner" was preferred since the protocols and specs produced by TRP should
be usable in a "non-business" as well as a "business" context.



I can't believe I'm hearing this advanced as an argument!?

Using TRP in a non-business context??

What are we talking about here - me sending out chess moves
in an online tournament or playing Vorgon Death Maze 3000 or
posting telemetry from my amateur space probe telescope
or 5th grade plant growing experiment data or similar 
something using TRP?

Total world domination of Internet transport by TRP is just
not going to happen here!

Let's drop the 'whats-in-a-word' games.   Partner is the
familiar and time tested term here.

Gore and Bush are doing plenty of this for us right now;
let's stay focused on more important TRP items.

Thanks, DW.
