I think that this is correct and aligned with what we
discussed. I'll defer to Dick for the final say in the

I still don't recall the concept of versionless envelopes
being discussed. IMHO, we should only be dealing with a
version identified envelope. I thought that I had submitted
a comment to this effect, but possibly not. In any event,
I think that we need to have a rationale and a clearly expressed
requirement for versionless packaging/header (which I cannot
find) or else lines 205/206 should be removed.

section 3 heading to read "Header Document" (ebXML is 
somewhat redundant, don't you think;-)

That's fine, we should make a note to discuss this at the
f2f in Dallas.

Possibly. I would think that we should be able to find
a much more succinct example with less payload content.
Another approach would be to add a <snip/> element
to truncate a major part of the message;-)

We can update the examples, schema and DTD for the final
