Subject: RE: TRP Error Handling Spec Draft


While architecturally, it may be considered a kludge, I like your 
"ErrorLogNetLocn" idea.  In a heterogenrous enviroment, which 
ebXML will be, it will help sort out interop problems (except for 
those companies which write perfect software -- they can set it 
to NULL).  With new versions and new players coming along, this 
could be invaluable to helping keep this all going.  

As some (most) of what is sent (exchanged) using ebXML is company 
and financial related data, there may be legal or privacy problems 
which need to be dealt with (again, perhaps with NULL).

But I do LIKE it.

Best regards,
