A business transaction would be defined in terms of the economic
elements in the BP metamodel:  that is, a business transaction
is a full resource exchange between trading partners, for example,
delivery of goods and payment, or, order-fulfillment-payment.
The business transaction is not complete until both partners
fulfill their explicit and implied commitments.

Commercial transactions would be used for the document
exchanges that documented the business transaction.
