Subject: Re: Template/Guidelines for building the ebXML Delivery Matrix

Hi Dick and gang,

Here are my draft delivery matrix items for the service interface (most
definitely NOT a Cadillac). In looking through the overview &
requirements doc it became clear that section 5.2 of that document is
most frighteningly whacked. The deliverables that I indicate are based
on our discussions to date, plus the direction that is expressed TA doc,
which is quite a bit more current (and reasonable!) than the TR&P O&R
