Subject: RE: confusion on where to discuss trading partners

Near as I can tell, the TPA is a source of information, some of 
which is necessary to populate the Headers.  As such, if the MS 
is to work without the TPA, we need to say where the info comes 

Actually, perhaps we should specify where the info comes from 
anyway.  Nothing like avoiding confusion.
