Subject: RE: PartyId and Context

So this hasn't died yet. I love URIs. They are beautiful. But I'm not yet
convinced to mandate everyone to
use it. Domain/Context, whatever, allows using URIs or some other list
(maybe private) of identifiers to indicate what
the value is, one of which could be "URI". This approach might even help
ebXML work within
an enterprise, where IANA registration makes no sense. I like the level of
indirection. Go ask an airline,
all they speak is IATA and just because that can be IANA registered, they
will still speak IATA.

Also, using domain/context DOES NOT mean ebXML MUST set up and maintain
some registration
authority. Precisely the opposite in fact, and allows ebXML not mandate any
of it.

To answer Charlie's and Duane's emails at one go.

There is a VERY GOOD REASON why we should NOT use domain and that is that
would need to set up and create our own registration authority when we can
leverage IANA if we use URIs.

Please read my original post on this point at ...


... and let me know if you think I am wrong to require the use of URIs
unless the codes are mutually agreed between the parties.

It's just that if we want to set up our own registration authority then we
are talking about a lot of expense and effort that, IMO, is just not
necessary when you can use a URN as the umbrella for other domains such as

Is there a good reason why the tags shouldn't just have the same name (in
TRP and Rep)? Obviously they don't mean the same exact thing but are they
close enough in intent to share the same name?
