Subject: Re: CPA and overrides

First, I speak for the many folks on this list when I say I am happy you
are impressed. I agree, a business context handle is a good thing. I
further agree that it should not be thrown away. I understand there are
concerns with loading security particles into the header. But, in the end,
making the "business context handle" or "Config Info" or "CPAid" optional,
lends itself to scalability, and allows simple messages, perhaps with no
security -- (or perhaps even you will not be able to have security at all
unless you have a CPAid and type),to flow over TRP. ebXML is complicated,
and rightfully designed for enterprise class environments. It is usually a
natural thing to address the "light" issues as things become substantively
understood at the comprehensive level. I still believe the biggest concern
is not if it makes sense, but can the header content and structure be
agreed upon while looking at the calendar.

I'd much rather see it required, but define a URN for "out of band".
There are things -- security in particular, such as which CA is
generating the certs used in the signatures -- that can't appear in the
header element.

When I was first learning about ebXML (oh these many weeks ago :), the
CPAid was one of the things that impressed me, and made ebXML "better"
than biztalk and soap.

Having a business context handle is a good thing that shouldn't be
thrown away.
