Subject: RE: [Fwd: RE: on the issue of PartyId]
Message text written by Martin W Sachs/Watson/IBM >It is true that when a company or individual has its phone number changed, a lot of people have to be notified and a few more changes, in profiles in registries, do not make much of a difference in the notification effort. Still, the consequences of a wrong phone number, used as a party ID in e-business, may have much greater impact than when the phone number is used only for human to human contact. Businesses should not be prevented from using their phone numbers as party IDs, but the practice should not be encouraged. Regards, Marty <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Marty - this is NOT a big deal in my opinion. Heck - people move house all the time and world does not stop. Frankly all you should have to do is create a NEW tp profile and store it to the registry, or simply deprecate your existing one. If the system cannot handle this - we are in bad trouble. Since the old #id will continue to work until a specified expiry date (see discussion on deprecation notification methods in RegRep) - this system should be self annealing at this level. (Its also the method the USPS uses BTW) Conclusion - changing telephone # should be part of the expected behaviour and not an issue. DW.
