Subject: RE: proposal: collapse To and From elements

You should be able to devise a URN scheme that includes, DUNS+4 or Internal
Routing, for example:

The point is we (i.e. ebXML) cannot hope to define all identifier/numbering
schemes that will be required. This way, if the RosettaNet folks want to
include some Internal Routing inside the Message Header, then they can
without overloading the base definition of a party, for those folks that
don't need it.

I'm not sure what you mean by "pretty". No one ever said
angle brackets were "pretty";-)

You do raise an interesting point. However, isn't
this sort of "internal" routing supposed to be
addressed with DUNS+4 (assuming that DUNS is used as
a Party identifier)?
