Subject: Re: ebxml trp mhs spec and workflow


It isn't clear to me that there are necessarily more
headers. There may well be, but we'll cross that bridge
when we get there.

The real issue is defining a multi-party TPA-like thing
which describes a multi-party collaboration exchange to 
effect a supply-chain-like business process which spans
more than two parties.

It isn't clear to me that this couldn't be effected over
base TR&P MS since each exchange *could* be handled
as a message between two parties.

Even so, I agree that it does need to be addressed, but
I don't believe for a minute that TR&P owns defining
how it should be modelled or implemented.
