Subject: Re: Marty, what do you see the variables being that ms will use...


You are asking an excellent question.  It appears that the layers below the
messaging service are not in ebXML's charter at the moment. On the hand,
what's below the messaging service is a set of existing standards.  On the
other hand, there is a serious interoperability issue if the
transport-layer things are not specified somewhere.

One answer (maybe actually the right one) is that if the ebXML TPA includes
all of the tags (or their equivalent) that tpaML has in the transport and
business protocol sections, and all of the text (or equivalent) that is
around them in tpaML, then interoperability is assured.  It will be
essential that ebXML accept the transport-level tags even though it isn't
doing anything else at the transport level.

The above is a wonderfully crisp statement that adds a lot of clarity
for implementors. Will something like this be captured in some ebXML
