Subject: RE: Very Rough Draft of Header Specification

Format is no big deal to me one way or the other.  But, as ebXML 
is sponsored by UN\CEFACT, it would be my guess that come June of 
next year when this winds up, UN/CEFACT will pick up the documentation 
and make into standards.  If this is right (and I might be way off 
in left field), we'd save ourselves (or at least the editors) a lot 
of work if we used their format from the outset.  Might want to check 
with Bob Suttor or Ray Walker.

Best regards,
