> appropriate to large
> enterprises;

> ∑	the need for globalized solutions that will accommodate
> national and
> international process requirements;
> ∑	completely open accessibility, enabled by a registry
> and repository;

> interoperability by supporting common business process,
> common semantics, a
> common vocabulary and common character encoding;
> ∑	consistent transport, routing and packaging
> methodologies to ensure secure
> sending and receiving of messages over the Internet; and
> ∑	digital signature and other security related capabilities.
