Subject: RE: DRAFT TRP Work Plan

>>>Are we talking about transport bindings here? <<<

No I'm talking about existing specs that address or include "messaging"
specs that cover the same space as ebXML Messaging, rather than
communication protocols like HTTP, SMTP.

For example specs like IOTP addresses B2C commerce and already include specs
for reliable messaging and how to use digital signatures using XML. Version
2.0 of IOTP that is just beginning to get going is an ideal candidate in my
mind to use ebXML TRP, but it can only do it if we include in the ebXML spec
function. We therefore need to review IOTP (and other specs like) to see how
they could use ebXML MEssaging as an alternative. If we don't we run the
risk of our specs being dismissed because of missing functionality.

Are we talking about transport bindings here? I thought we had agreed in
San Jose that these should be in the spec, at least as an appendix. I
agree with David that the work needs to be done, whether it's documented
or not, to ensure that the rest of the spec provides suffieient support
for the real transports that will be used. I would think that including
documentation of the bindings, without necessarily being prescriptive,
would be useful for developers to see how artifacts in the spec map to
implementations over the various transports.

I'm optimistic that the spec can contain enough detail that
implementations can occur against the targeted protocols, but we need to
at least think through real world implementations to be sure. This is
particularly important for reliable messaging over anything but
