Subject:  Is BP Specification Schema mandatory?

an issue has arisen in the Quality Reveiw of the Business Porcess
Specification Schema.
Their document states:

"The CPA/CPP Specification requires that parties agree upon a Collaboration
Agreement (CPA) in order to transact business. A CPA associates itself with
a specific
Binary Collaboration. Thus, all Business Transactions performed between two
parties must
be referenced through Business Transaction Activities contained within a
Collaboration. " (Business Process Specification Schema v0.99, lines

we queried this condition with the BP team and now accept that this is in
line with the
current CPP/CPA spec, that states:

line 496 "The CollaborationRole element SHALL consist of the following
child elements: a
REQUIRED ProcessSpecification element, ..."

and subsequently...

line 554 "The ProcessSpecification element provides the link to the
document that defines the interactions between the two Parties.  This
document is
prepared in accord with the ebXML Business Process Specification Schema

our concern is that this would prevent organisations not using business
process models
(in ebXML BPSS form) from using ebXML CPAs.  we cannot see why this
restriction is

can you clarify the intention?
