Subject: Re: CPA and overrides


Whether a CPA details one way, or multiple ways of doing
things is irrelevant. If the automotive industry does 
indeed have only a single approach, then construction of a 
CPA is as simple as filling in only a very few details
that apply only to the two parties:
	party deails URL
	endpoint info (URL)
	certificates (if certificate-based security is used)

The rest could be a template that defines the specifics
that all parties (or the automotive indistry) have agreed

Seems to me that this is then a trivial price to pay
for interoperability.

Please do keep in mind that a CPA is NOT a TPA. It is
a shared configuration file that can help to ensure that
two parties can interoperably exchange business information.
