Subject: Re: FW: Call for Review: XML Protocol Activity Proposal

I recommend that this project team nominates someone who isn't
likely to be stringly involved via their own organization (eg, not
companies like IBM, Sun, Commerce One, etc.) and then we try
to get them on the eventual working group via the invited expert route.
ebXML needs someone who is both highly knowledgeable about the
subject but who really represents this organizations interests.

Subject:  FW: Call for Review: XML Protocol Activity Proposal

Looks like W3C has made their protocol efforts official.  We'll need to
figure out how to approach this effort.

>>From the Briefing Package Executive Summary
>With the increasing popularity and use of XML, a number of XML protocols
>have emerged for building distributed applications including e-commerce,
>business logic, workflow management, etc. Although the scope and feature
>set of these protocols vary greatly, there is a trend towards a common
>core set of functionalities which most of them provide.
>Recently W3C has organized meetings at XTech 2000 and WWW9 on the topic
>of XML protocols, resulting in significant community support for
>creating a W3C Activity which defines this core set of functionalities.
>The purpose of the W3C XML Protocol Activity is to define a protocol
>framework that promotes interoperability and decentralized extensibility
>on the Web. The proposed Activity consists of an XML Protocol Core
>(XML PC) Working Group with the charter to define a lightweight and
>simple framework consisting of two parts:
>     1. An envelope for encapsulating XML data to be transferred
>    in a lightweight manner that allows for distributed
>    extensibility and evolvability as well as intermediaries.

>     2. A mechanism for serializing data representing non-syntactic
>    data models such as object graphs and directed labeled graphs.
>In order to focus the work, a list of related but non-essential features
>has been defined explicitly as out of scope. This list includes features
>     Directly handling binary data
>     Compact encodings and compression issues
>     Explicit transport services
>     Explicit application semantics
>     Metadata description of services
>It is proposed that the all technical Working Group discussions are to
>take place on the public <xml-dist-app@w3.org> mailing list.
>It is proposed that the XML PC Working Group takes the recent SOAP/1.1
>submission as a starting point, although it is authorized to make
>incompatible changes if there are solid technical reasons for doing so.
