Subject: RE: PartyId and Context

I don't believe that it will be necessary for ebXML to set up its own
registry of values of a domain/context attribute.  I believe that such
registries already exist.  What will be necessary is for ebXML to come up
with a list of such registries and include the names as normative
references in the CPP specification.  Incidentally if different registries
have different values of the same context (e.g. DUNS), then we would need
two levels of context attribute - one to identify the registry and the
other to identify the entry in that registry.

Subject:  RE: PartyId and Context

hehe... ok... there are two issues here. My original message was about
something different than what you guys are talking about (but as luck would
have it I have something to say about both! :-)

1) Domain/Context

We certainly would not have to set up a registry for the element values
the id could take on. However, we certainly would have to set up some sort
of registry for the ATTRIBUTE values that domain/context could take on.
is a different thing than what IANA does though. We probably have this
problem anyway (i.e. supporting an extensible universe of attribute values
for many of the ebXML DTDs).

If people start concocting their own ad-hoc naming schemes then this cold
become a problem but that sorta defeats the purpose of the naming scheme in
the first place :-) My guess is we could do an respectable job of
identifying the existing naming schemes and not have to evolve that list
very much in the future.

Bottom line: I agree with Scott that this does not equate to ebXML
a registry for the names themselves but it would require that ebXML be a
"registry" (largely static) of the TYPES of names that can appear in party

2) My original (not-so-obvious-it-turns-out) point

I was talking about the element tags themselves (FromParty vs.
If it makes sense, then the repository and the TRP group should use the
name. That's all I was trying to say :-)
