Subject: RE: Very Rough Draft of Header Specification

Using the same layout, fonts, etc should not be a problem. However I think
we can usefully copy the structure of standards produced by, for example,
the IETF. Especially if:
1. We think we might eventually submit the document to the IETF as an
Internet Draft and even eventually an **informational RFC** - it can
**never** be a "proposed standard" or "standard" as we're doing our work
outside of the IETF
2. They have some good ideas, for example on the use of MUST, SHOULD, MUST
NOT, etc - they really help to tighten up a specification

Does this make sense?

David you have been busy!!!

The requirements teams specifies that their document format is the one
everyone should use. Do we want to support that? Is this that format? any
issues?  best regards, rik

Subject: Very Rough Draft of Header Specification


I attach a very rough draft of the Header Specification. The roughest area
is probably the Data Dictionary as I know there are inconsistencies in this
section when compared with the Header Structures section - the latter is the
more accurate and over rules what is currently in the Data Dictionary - it's
just that I've run out of time and thought it better to get this to
everyone a day earlier so that you can read it.

The way the spec was developed was:
1. Identify the data requirements from our requirements documet
2. Do a quick review of the header classification work that John I did, to
see if there were any gaps.

What we absolutely must do (but haven't yet) is to do a rigorous comparison
of this spec with other specs (BizTalk, AS1, AS2 etc) to make sure that we
can map between them. This should then give a migration path from these
standards to the approach we are developing.

John Ibbotson is also planning to do a sample DTD so that we can see how
this all fits together

PS If anyone wants a PDF version please let me know.
